Jim Lehrer’s name is synonymous with television journalism. With his partner of over 20 years, Robert MacNeil, he helped redefine the evening newscast and brought the in-depth discussion of current affairs the American audience hungered for. A former Marine, he has been called the "Dean of Moderators" for having conducted almost a dozen presidential debates. He has received an Emmy Award, a National Humanities medal, and in 1999 he was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame. On this episode of InnerVIEWS, Ernie sits down with the executive editor and former anchor for PBS’ News Hour, Jim Lehrer.
