Robert Novak, 1931-2009
Kenneth Tomlinson at Human Events, which ran the Evans-Novak Report until it was ended last year, confirms that the conservative reporter Robert Novak has died after a year-long battle with cancer. Tim Carney, Novak’s last collaborator on the report, has a remembrance up.
Novak would often tell aspiring journalists to pick a different field if their goal was to change the world. But, by simply aiming to inform and to do his job as well he could, Novak changed the lives of his readers and those of us blessed to work with him.
Update: Lynn Sweet confirms it:
“He was someone who loved being a journalist, love journalism and loved his country and loved his family,” Novak’s wife, Geraldine, told the Sun-Times on Tuesday.
