Tribute: Media Mourns A Fallen King

News outlets nationwide are paying tribute to Johnny Carson, who passed away Sunday.

During his 30 years as host of The Tonight Show, Carson reinvented an entire genre of television, setting the standard for the countless talk shows on television today. I would say he will be missed, but he pretty much had been gone from the public eye since retiring in 1992.

Below are a few touching pieces that remember Johnny far more eloquently than I ever could.
