Default Walter Cronkite 1916 – 2009

I know it is stretching a point to suggest that Walter Cronkite had anything to do with publishing. He was never a print sort of guy. But if you are an American old enough to remember the 1960s, ’70s, or early ’80s, you probably cannot think of the news without thinking of Walter Cronkite.

He told us about John F. Kennedy’s assassination. He covered the marches and political issues surrounding the Vietnam war. He reported on the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1968. He was our eyes and ears during the Nixon saga.

If you are of a certain age, and if you owned a TV set, you have memories of Walter Cronkite, who died today at 92. May he rest in peace.
