TV icon Walter Cronkite has passed away
CBS newsman Walter Cronkite, legendarily known as "The Most Trusted Man in America," passed away today at the age of 92.
With the face of a small-town druggist, an easily-parodied delivery that was both herky-jerky and orotund (“As-tronaut Juhn Glenn...”), and a mien of utter seriousness, Walter Cronkite was the acknowledged king of the golden era of network news. Serving as the managing editor of the CBS Evening News between 1962 and 1981, Cronkite projected a professional authority and personal integrity that invested him with a credibility no contemporary journalist, operating in a more skeptical era, possesses. When Cronkite ended a broadcast with his signature “And that’s the way it is,” neither he nor his audience doubted that it was true.

Abe made the best wise guy in the movies because with him it was always 'is he one or is he not? He kept them guessing.

Good old 'Uncle Walter' kept them guessing as well.

Cronkite was a good actor and that is why he was the first so-called 'news anchor'. He could bring his emotions to the surface on cue and that is why he was 'the most trusted man in America'. He was a professional. What his profession was is for you to decide.
Eustace Mullins links Cronkite to the Swine Flu vaccine drama of 1976 as a willing participant in a propaganda campaign that was brought to bear to urge people to take the flu shot after the President Fords' own White House staff had pointed out its ineffectiveness.. At best, he was a naive newsman being used for deceptive purposes. He wasn't naive, imo. 'And that's the way it is'.

I knew him.

You heard wrong.
In ten years we'll look back on this moment, laugh nervously, and quickly change the subject.
