The Honorable Walter Cronkite

We mourn the death of Walter Cronkite at age 92.

Unlike Tim Russert (and his cohorts) who made himself the story and debased his profession Walter Cronkite was an honorable man who cared about reporting the news.

Walter Cronkite hit the Normandy beach with American troops on D-Day. That was not the only news Walter Cronkite covered.

Notice how the story was the center of the drama, not the man announcing the news.

Walter Cronkite was not perfect in his life.

However, compared to today’s Big Media blowhards Walter Cronkite was perfect.

If Big Media “personalities” would look at the career of Walter Cronkite and examine their own debased activities the American people would be better off.

Good-bye Honorable Walter Cronkite.
