A file picture taken on May 6, 1973 in Paris shows former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, who oversaw reporting on the Watergate scandal that brought down US president Richard Nixon, speaking.  Bradlee, who died of natural causes at his Washington home on October 21, 2014 at age 93, leaves a lasting legacy at the Post and in the wider media, and has been hailed as a genius and for having "the courage of an army." Bradlee's reign as editor saw the Post win the Pulitzer Prize for its Watergate stories, and the respected newspaper also played a role in the successful legal challenge to the publication of the Pentagon Papers revealing the political maneuvers leading up to the Vietnam War.
