Bill Plante was an excellent reporter and an even better friend and colleague. Some of my best times as a White House correspondent came over dinner and a bottle of wine with Bill at the end of a busy day on a foreign trip.
.@margbrennan pays tribute to Bill Plante, whose legendary career at @CBSNews spanned more than 5 decades which included him covering some of the biggest stories in and outside of Washington D.C. “Bill made us better journalists and better people.”

RIP Bill Plante. He was a great journalist, mentor and friend. Bill knew history and he knew politics but he loved wine. Open a good bottle in Bill’s honor. I know I will.
