RIP, Walter Cronkite

cronkite

Even to those who didn’t grow up watching him deliver the news, Cronkite is still an icon, even for those not interested in journalism. Since there’s no tribute I can properly give, I’ll just let the man speak for himself (which for many years, he did quite eloquently):

My favorite part of the second video comes from the former LBJ aide, who says, “The president knew that if he had lost Walter Cronkite, he had lost the war.” That certainly speaks volumes about the man’s integrity and influence.
