I'm going to go way out on a limb here and presuppose that given that the internet is still a fairly new phenomenon, and that sites such as ATS are
an even more recent phenomenon, that the majority of computer and internet savvy members here may be young enough to not remember what the "evening
news" used to look like and represent.
I grew up in the era of Chet Huntley, David Brinkley and Walter Cronkite. The Huntley-Brinkley Report was on NBC and Cronkite on CBS. Our black and
white TV only got two channels, imagine that. No talking heads or bimbos in short dresses, no "commentary or analysis". Just one half hour to give
you the facts of important issues taking place in the world. The NBC and CBS news departments would break into normal broadcasts if something
demanding the attention of the American people was important, such as the early space program, the assassination of President Kennedy and Martin
Luther King, or the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, but it was purely and repeatedly just to deliver the facts that they were presented with.
The point I'm making here is that if you haven't watched the OP's first video, or have, please go to 5:20 and 10:55 in and listen to what that
elderly gentleman has to say. That gentleman is Mr. Cronkite, often referred to as the dean of news broadcasters, and one of the most respected
individuals ever to report the news, and should be heeded when he states his opinion about FOX.
I can only say that any organization that would proudly proclaim to have Coulter and Rove on their staff, may need to do a little soul searching. That
and I would like to know where they all go to church so I can join in and try to figure out where they get their guidance. I certainly can't remember
my reverend pointing his finger at me while cutting me off and telling me to shut up, And then turn his back to me and walk away, so I couldn't
answer, continuing to call me an idiot and that I just don't understand the facts.
I was very surprised to see Cronkite in this video and was taken aback by what he said. Very unlike him to make a statement like that.
