'New Dissector, Democracy Projector': A Poet’s Tribute to Danny Schechter

Eliot Katz

What I’ll always remember most about Danny Schechter, besides his friendship, was his passionate commitment to democratic principles—in every field from politics and economics to journalism and culture—and his amazing energy for brainstorming creative ideas.

Do the people who write the headlines even read the articles?

Danny Schechter was known as the News Dissector. Katz clearly writes "News Dissector, Democracy Projector".

It's bad enough that the term is rendered meaningless in the headline, but to put quotes around it is a disservice to Mr. Katz and an insult to Mr. Schechter.

If that's the full (or only) message you take from this moving tribute, your own pettiness becomes you.
