R.I.P. Andy Rooney

Andy Rooney
(14.01.1919-04.11.2011)

Legendarul jurnalist american Andy Rooney, cunoscut timp de mai multe decenii pentru comentariile din influenta emisiune TV de investigatii "60 Minutes", a incetat din viata, vineri, la varsta de 92 de ani, relateaza presa internationala.

Decesul s-a produs din cauza unor complicatii aparute in urma unei interventii chirugicale minore, au declarat reprezentantii postului CBS, care nu au precizat despre ce operatie a fost vorba.

Rooney s-a retras de la "60 Minutes" in 2 octombrie, dupa 33 de ani la emisiune si peste 1.000 de comentarii pe subiectele abordate in aceasta.


"M-am plans de o multime de lucruri, dar de unul singur nu ma pot plange: de viata mea", spunea Rooney, in ultimul sau comentariu la "60 Minutes".

Modest si autodelimitat constant de statutul de celebritate, jurnalistul a lucrat pentru "60 Minutes" inca de la primul sezon al emisiunii, insa consacrarea a venit odata cu primul sau comentariu, realizat in 1978.

"Nu exista nimeni la fel ca el si nici nu va exista vreodata", au spus reprezentantii postului TV la care Rooney a facut cariera.

Etalonul de jurnalism reprezentat de emisiunea "60 Minutes" a inspirat si filmul "The Insider", in care au jucat Al Pacino si Russell Crowe. Sursa: NewsIn
