On this day

Happy Birthday Ben Bradlee

While his name might be a bit unknown, Bradlee oversaw arguably the most important news stories in post-World War II America as executive editor of The Washington Post. Between publishing The Pentagon Papers and greenlighting the Watergate story (and being a personal friend of the Kennedys, shown here with JFK Jr.), he deserves some birthday wishes on what would have been his 99th birthday.
