Brokaw Recalls "Very Opinionated" Jennings

Tom Brokaw recalled Peter Jennings on Imus this morning: "Peter was a very opinionated guy. I mean, He had very strong feelings about things. He didn't hesitate to let you know them. Sometimes you'd have to kind of pull him down off the wall, or off the ceiling, and say 'hey, wait a minute, Peter, there's another way of looking at this,' or whatever, and that was part of his strength, and part of what made him interesting." This is not the first time Brokaw's said this (on "Hardball," to name another), but what is he trying to say? Was he trying to say Very Opinionated Peter couldn't keep the passion out of his newscast?
