Bernard Shaw (CNN)
He attended the University of Illinois at Chicago from 1963-1968.
Shaw is widely remembered for the question he posed to Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Michael Dukakis at his second Presidential debate with George H. W. Bush during the 1988 election, which Shaw was moderating. Knowing that Dukakis opposed the death penalty, Shaw asked Dukakis if he would support an irrevocable death penalty for a man who raped and murdered his wife. Dukakis responded that he would not; some critics felt he framed his response too legalistically and logically, and did not address it sufficiently personally.
