Goodbye Walt

Filed under: Entertainment,Florida News,Just For Fun |

Seems we’re in a phase where the legends that most of us have grown up with are now leaving us. I suppose you could call it aging…or plain and simple “I’m getting old” syndrome.

The latest to leave us…former US TV newscaster Walter Cronkite, known to millions as the most trusted man in America”, has died at the age of 92.

Mr. Cronkite presented the evening news program for CBS from 1962 to 1981, helping the program to become the most watched bulletin in the US.

His career covered such major global events as the assassination of former US President John F Kennedy, the moon landing, Watergate, former President Richard Nixon’s resignation and the fall of Saigon.

In 1972, he was deemed by a poll of the US public to be, “the most trusted man in America”, beating presidents, members of congress and other journalists.

He ended his broadcasts with his signature sign-off: “That’s the way it is.”

Mr Cronkite’s opinion was so trusted by the US public that when he criticised the war in Vietnam, President Lyndon B Johnson is reported to have said: “If I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost middle America.”

Goodbye Walt.
