    I was too young to appreciate Walter Cronkite before his retirement.

    My favorite news person was Peter Jennings. I still miss him.

    Amy Goodman.

    Almost anybody else is just a suit reading the news. She's been there, done that and nearly been killed for getting the story. (Note: I said killed FOR, not killed WHILE)

    I say Peter Jennings

    Grew up with him you can say and was sad to see him die.

    No one compares to Cronkite for me. No one ever will.

    From what I know (obviously before my time) Ed Murrow stands out.

    More in my era, I always liked Dan Rather - which made the circumstances of his departure more troubling.

    Didn't know Cronkite, unfortunately.

    (Chet) Huntley and (David) Brinkley.

    They were a team, thus I'm naming both. Their theme song was the amazing 2nd Movement, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, not the more famous 'Ode To Joy'.

    No .. he's just another entertainment talking bobble-head ... he's in the same genre as O'Reilly, Hannity, Olberman, Maddow, Limbaugh, etc.

    Oh I know, I guess sarcasm doesn't show well as words.
