(AP) – Roger Ebert, the most famous and popular film reviewer of his time
who became the first journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for movie criticism and,
on his long-running TV program, wielded the nation’s most influential thumb,
died Thursday at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, his office said. Only
a day earlier, he announced on his blog that he was undergoing radiation
treatment after a recurrence of cancer. Ebert had been a film critic for the
Chicago Sun-Times since 1967.
