Ending her maiden voyage on Monday, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O'Donnell offered a short commentary in which she quoted one of her predecessors about using television as a “weapon” in “battle...against ignorance, intolerance, and indifference”:

Thank you for joining us tonight. There is a great legacy here at CBS News of the finest journalists. One of them was Edward R. Murrow, who eloquently captured the power of television when he said “this instrument can teach, it can illuminate. Yes, and even it can inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise, it’s nothing but wires and lights in a box. There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance, and indifference. This weapon of television could be useful.” To Mr. Murrow, we will try to use it well and with integrity. 

Look out, Scott Pelley. Because you might have some competition at CBS in the smug department.
