Steve Post, RIP

The voice of New York mornings in those heady days of the 80s and 90s has died.

He rejected notions that his views represented 1960s idealism, however much he admired those values. In a 1989 interview with Newsday, he called himself “a Hobbesian, not a Marxist.” He continued, “I believe people are essentially brutal, murderous, lying bastards who put on masks of civility to make society work.”

Or, as he later said on the air, “Just when you think you’ve scraped the bottom, you find you’re only scratching the surface.”
