I don't celebrate their passing, but I do not mourn it, either.
Re: “Left-leaning? LEFT-leaning? I watched and listen to these two for decades. The leftist media always puts forth a select few of their cabal to trot out when they need the example of a ‘open-minded reasonable person’ who obviously has a more valuable opinion than some Neanderthal conservative. Both of these two were dyed in the wool leftists; they were just smarter and more subtle about accomplishing their leftist agendas. Aimiable dispositions and cordial on-camera acts do not make an impartial observer; it just hides their true thoughts.

I agree with your assessment — no celebration now, but no mourning either.
