I personally feel, Walter Cronkite was the best Anchor Man in News History.

He gave the truth - and was the original Anchor Man of the News - I grew up with him on T.V.

May he Rest In Peace.

He did live a long life - passed at 92 years old.

CBS is doing a long segment about him right now - they cut into the program on.

Goodnight and goodluck?

Edit: Oh, that was someone else, wasn't it.

Sadly, Walter was before my time.


Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. (November 4, 1916 - July 17, 2009) was a American broadcast journalist, best known as anchorman for the CBS Evening News for 19 years (1962–81). During the heyday of CBS News in the 1970s and 1980s, he was often cited in viewer opinion polls as "the most trusted man in America" because of his professional experience and kindly demeanor. Cronkite died on July 17, 2009 at the age of 92 after an extended battle with cerebrovascular disease.

uhhh, who? His last name sort of sounds like a candy bar but I've fairly sure that's not what he's about.

I respect your opinion of Mr. Cronkite. I feel he was an icon of journalistic broadcasting and a worthy member of an all-but-dead profession.

However, with all due respect to the deceased I would say Edward R. Morrow was the best. But Mr. Cronkite was a close second for sure.

Was great as a newsman in his day.
lost respect when he got old and started giving opinions as if they were news, Came across as a doddering old guy, not classy, just opinionated and misguided. Stumblebumish
Enough of a rant, note to self, remember to not speak ill of the dead, unless it's Michael Jackson

Exactly forty years after his truly touching narration of the Apollo moon landing, Walter now heads to the here and beyond. God speed on his final journey.

Lets hope this sees more coverage than than the Michael Jackson Circus. If it does not it is pretty damning of our society.

I grew up watching this Icon. Kennedy, the Moon Landing and so much more.

He had a long wonderful life. Its a shame he never ran for office but then he was too honest to do that.

I truly miss that old just the facts and nothing but the fact reporting.

Ah, no, he continued the lies of JFK's murder, as did all news agencies, and he is definitely one of the "elitist" who were in on it as he helped with the cover up. IF he were so honest, then he would have told the truth. I hope it tortures his soul forever that he, and others, sold out our country to globalists and foreign interests and allowed them to get away with it (covered up via THEIR 'NEWS' agencies). Not really a conspiracy topic, I don't feel badly at all.

WHAT else is going on? The "Hate Bill" passed in the Senate, among other things, and the "news" talks about something that means NOTHING in our lives. Are you helping by bringing THIS up here as opposed to something useful? Again, I have no pitty or remorse for saying he was evil for being in on it and thus, cares nothing about PEOPLE, just the globalist agenda.

Don't forget his lies about Tet '68 where he claimed a stunning North Vietnamese victory .... after they suffered 100,000 casaulties and achieved NOTHING. Every single community they captured we recaptured within a month. They couldent even capture the US Embassy defended by a mere dozen US Marines, they were so clueless they just randomly wandered around the embassy grounds as the Marines picked them off one by one.

So much for Uncle Walter's the war is "lost" ...

Thought this was apt:

"Evening news is where they begin with 'Good evening', and then proceed to tell you why it isn't."

He was the "Eighth astronaut".

Fortunately he was able to live a long life.

It is sad to see him go, but almost fitting for him to leave the same year that "analog TV died"....

So long Walt.

cronkite was a news man in an era that is no more. he was respected and never questioned. no telling what was truth and what wasn't.

why is this in breaking alternative news? it has no element of conspiracy. he was 92 years old. people die. this should be in general news.
