Walter Cronkite Gravely Ill

TVNewser has learned legendary CBS newsman Walter Cronkite, 92, who once held the title of "Most Trusted Man in America," is gravely ill, according to multiple CBS News sources. The network began updating his obituary more than a week ago, a source adds.

CBS News executive Linda Mason, designated to speak on Cronkite's behalf, had no comment.

The avuncular Cronkite anchored "CBS Evening News" for 19 years, until 1981, when he was forced to retire. Dan Rather was named his successor. Cronkite maintained an office at CBS, where he was a special correspondent.

A native of St. Joseph, Mo., Cronkite made his mark as a World War II correspondent for United Press. He joined CBS in 1950 as a Washington correspondent. In 1962, he was named anchor of "CBS Evening News," then 15 minutes in length. The following year, it became network TV's first 30'minute weeknight newscast.

Cronkite's nightly sign-off -- "And that's the way it is..." - became part of the popular lexicon, and his gravelly voice was instantly recognizable. During his tenure, he led "Evening News" to first place in the Nielsen ratings.

Cronkite returned to "Evening News," in a manner of speaking, in September 2006, when he recorded the opening to the newscast with new anchor Katie Couric.

In an interview with this reporter in 2006, Cronkite was asked if he ever thought about death.

"When you get to be 89, you have to think about it a little bit. It doesn't prey on me, and it doesn't keep me awake nights. Occasionally, when I'm upset about something else, I think, 'My gosh, I don't know if I should do this or that because I'm not sure I'll be here that long to enjoy it.'"

He's been dead before and come back so he might again. If not he is 92, how long does he have to live before his death isn't sad?

Interesting word "gravely". Gravely ill must mean he has one foot in the grave. Gravyly ill means he gets ill when he eats gravy - which is really bad at Thanksgiving.

It always seems to be a mason who 'comes back to life' so may I suggest that this is some sort of test to find out how well their programming has been working.

 Quoting: Edward Kelly




I dunno if he's communist.

But he is most definately pro-one-world-government. He also did a number of anti-firearm video clips that were briefly shown in theatres prior to the main movie.

Re: Walter Cronkite Gravely Ill
THIS IS TO ALL THE STUPID, ARROGANT LITTLE SHITS WHO HAVE NO IDEA WHAT A REAL NEWSMAN IS...

Walter Cronkite was/is the geniune article. A serious, no-nonsense type of journalist who went to the front lines of Korea and VietNam for other than just a photo-op - this guy FELT his stories and reported them with heart and soul and an HONESTY that could easily have gotten him elected POTUS had he chosen to become a part of the system he so clearly revealed to us. You stupid little motherfuckers probably don't even realise that it was CRONKITE who ultimately shamed LBJ into not seeking a second term after seeing for himself what a sham VietNam was and then reporting that fact to the entire country. Years before that, I still remember well him crying onscreen as he reported JFK's death to the nation; or later, reporting on the riots in Watts, or Neil Armstrong landing on the moon.. the list is endless and Walter Cronkite was the eyes and ears for millions of Americans thorughout our country's greatest days as well as our worst.

This man created the standard that every single other news personality uses today to judge excellence in performance and he will be missed by all as theey realise they will never see another like him again.

Thank you, Walter... for a job very well done.

You don't blame the teacher for students who refuse to learn, or worse: prostitute their craft for mere fame and glory. Cronkite didn't seek out fame... it followed him because he was truly unique and the genuine article. THAT'S why people listened to him, and most importantly: trusted him.
