"I've never had a tougher editor in terms of scripts. That dreaded phone call would come. 'You'd better come over here and see Peter in his office.' That was a very bad signal. It indicated Peter wanted to go over the script from beginning to end… He wanted stories told simply and clearly and directly. - Brian Ross, ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent

"My proudest moment at ABC -- and it happened to me once -- was he handed me a script with no changes." - Dan Harris, ABC News correspondent
