Question of the Day

Apr 29, 2014

Yesterday's question of the day asked: Yesterday marked the ending of Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Yom HaShoah. For many, it is a day to remember those we lost, which includes one brave war correspondent for the Associated Press who died at Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp. Please tell us his name. That would be Joseph Morton, reportedly the only American and Allied correspondent to be executed by the Axis during World War II.

The nod once again goes to M. Edward Borasky for being the first to answer that correctly. Honorable mentions also go out to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay TimesJim Winter of the Dubuque Telegraph HeraldDagmar EbaughJeanne KirkHiram ReisnerAdam Richter of the Reading Eagle, and Cindi Lash of Pittsburgh Magazine.

As for today's question, here it is: This famous Hollywood actor was studying broadcast journalism at Northern Kentucky University until he dropped out in 1981, allegedly because he was tired of constant comparisons to his father, already a well-known local TV newsman. Who's the actor?
