Wiki instantly updated I see:
Walter Cronkite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prayers to his family.
I don't mean any disrespect to Walter but shouldn't the story be more important than the reporter? Too many reporters are TV stars nowadays, Cronkite included.
I was brought up with him, but was old enough at the end of his run to know he was less than biased. With that said, I'm sorry he won't be here for the coverage of the old moon walk-for him it was special. Fair well Walter.
Cronkite's greatness was that he was an honorable man...
This is the man about whom Richard Nixon said "if we've lost Walter Cronkite, we've lost the war"...
He can be the story one last time. He earned it.
Cronkite led the way for TV journalism. All the time he was on the air, there was never any indication of hs political leanings. Reporters today should follow his example. It is too bad that they do not.
Cronkite will be missed.
I grew up watching him and Huntley and Brinkley....I am totally saddened.
Lyndon B. Johnson. . If I've lost Cronkite, I've lost middle America." ...
Shit, I thought he died 10 years ago.
Michael Jackson died. I found it difficult to care.
Walter Cronkite died. I find I don't care all that much.
Still, may he rest in peace.
