Adios Walter Cronkite!

“Walter Cronkite, America’s preeminent television journalist of the 1960s and 1970s who as anchor and managing editor of “CBS Evening News” played a primary role in establishing television as the dominant national news medium of that era, died tonight at the age of 92, CBS reported,” according to the Washington Post.

“In a 1973 public opinion poll by the Oliver Quayle organization, Cronkite was named the most trusted public figure in the United States, ahead of the president and the vice president.”

Does anyone trust T.V. media today?  Talk about the end of an era…
