WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is remembering the late editor Ben Bradlee as a “true newspaperman” who transformed The Washington Post into one of the country’s finest papers.

Bradlee died Tuesday at his home in Washington at the age of 93.

In a statement issued Tuesday night, Obama says Bradlee set a standard for honest, objective and meticulous reporting that encouraged many others to enter the profession.

Just last fall, Obama awarded Bradlee the Presidential Medal of Freedom during a ceremony at the White House.
