Charlie Rose on WFB

Here’s a tribute to William F. Buckley Jr by PBS’s Charlie Rose. It lasts about an hour. Rose’s appreciation of Buckley’s friendship, and his life, stands out in this episode. The godfather of Cold War conservatism was the epitome of class and style, appreciated by liberals and conservatives alike for his intellectual acumen and his charitable inclination towards both friend and foe. We’ve dropped a long way from Bill Buckley to Bill O’Reilly.
