In my life there was no other man more trusted than Walter Cronkite. I grew up with him. To me he was a “grandfather type” that wouldn’t lie to you! You liked him and he would tell you what you needed to know. We would watch old film clips in school about history and Walter was in them I believed they were called “And You Are There” or something close to that.
Not many news anchors even come close to him since he retired. Maybe Peter Jennings was liked a lot but I don’t think it was half as much as Walter. He retired quite a few years ago and he has been missed. Will some one please replace Katie Couric with an older friendly grandfather type!
