Journalist Morley Safer, left, with The Daily Quarterly editor Brian DiMaio, right. After a stint at The Daily Quarterly Safer found himself in Vietnam reporting on the war. As the story goes DiMaio feared for Safer’s safety so he enlisted and was assigned to Safer’s security detatchment effectively keeping Safer safer. Rumor has it that DiMaio did such a thing solely for the wordplay. Others say DiMaio felt Safer had a good shot at being the longest reporter on staff at the longest running and highest grossing news program.
