Walter Cronkite dies at age 92
I just heard that Walter Cronkite has died. News link.
He was once called "the most trusted man in America" and was the one who brought news of JFK's assassination to most of the country. YouTube.
And thats the way it is. Friday July 17th 2009.
Here's a link.
And that's the way it was. Friday July 17, 2009. RIP Mr. Cronkite.
I was too young to remember him doing the evening news but he was the grandfather of television news and wont ever be duplicated.
I think he was the last of an era. RIP.
Watching him deliver the news to the American people that Kennedy has died gets me every time. Such a classic part of history he was at so many points.
"And even Cronkite is saying the war is unwinnable"
A short video about Walt and the lunar landing. link
It's kinda sad when nobody is talking about the passing of the greatest news man ever. But won't shut up about Michael Jackson.
He was awesome grew up watching him.
He was an icon-- I am old enough to remember his newscasts and when he left. But he kept on exploring...
We need more like him.
I don't know why, but I thought he was quite a bit younger than 92.
His life shows what it truly takes to make a great news reporter/newscaster - nothing like the 99% out there reporting today.
I still remember him making that call when President Kennedy was killed. He took his glasses off, wiped a tear, and kept on going.
His retirement did mark the end of an era in U.S. television news. I had not realized that it was Cronkite, not Ed Sullivan, who first televised the Beatles in America!
I am sad that he is gone.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Cronkite a couple of times at the ship's chandlery I worked at here in Annapolis. Very nice man.
He also used to be the spokesman for the publication where I work now.
Fair winds, Walter.
