- Found out he was on the list when he read his name aloud on live television.

Comment:I have always thought Schorr probably arranged to get himself put on the list. In any case he lived the rest of his life basking in his "List Martyrdom".Year in and year out anything troubling that happened anywhere he blamed on Nixon or Bush. Thank you NPR.
