on Peter Jennings:
"As an anchor, Mr. Jennings presented himself as a worldly alternative to Mr. Brokaw's plain=spoken Midwestern manner and Mr. Rather's folksy, if at times offbeat, Southern charm. He neither spoke like many of his viewers ('about' came out of his mouth as A-BOOT, a remant of his Canadian roots) nor looked liked them, with a matinee-idol face and crisply tailored wardrobe that were frequently likened in print to those of James Bond."
