Walter Cronkite was awesome when he narrated "The Twentieth Century". No one remembers that show.

We got a TV in 1953. First thing I remember watching was the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II that summer. I think they had to fly the tapes to the US before broadcasting them here. After that my younger brothers essentially took charge of our entertainment choices (no remotes back then) so it was stuff like Howdy Doody and The Lone Ranger. No wonder I ended up a bookworm instead of a TV addict. Still we did usually watch evening news programs. Murrow's See It Now made the cut, including the famous expose of McCarthy.

I'm not so sure you would have seen Cronkite, Brinkley or Huntley yucking it up with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show or slow jamming the news on Jimmy Fallon.

I am a totally ridiculous News Junky, and Have OTA, an FTA Dish, and a Raspberry Pi hooked up to watch whatever I can find on XBMC. Lately I watch

1. Fox News
2. Al Jazeera - America (and English)
3. BBC
4. CCTV 9
5. Russia Today
6. France 24
7. CNN International
8. Press TV
9. CNC

I also have the FTA dish scanning ABC News One to catch the wild feeds. All news channels are slanted one way or another. I like to get all of it and try to filter out the facts from the spin. The more you hear, the better informed you are.
