not that there aren't a few exceptions here and there, but my, how far they have fallen.

Thanks, Mr. Cronkite. My wife and my life are better having experienced you. Rest in Peace...and prayers to your family, as you will surely and sorely be missed.

1. Walter is the high water mark in journalist
Those who call themselves journalist don't deserve to be in the category as Walter Cronkite.

3. I know what you mean - he reported the news in a serious style
Then, the "cutsie news" style started creeping in. I first saw that on a visit to Colorado from New York. I thought it was folksy but never dreamed it would take hold and go viral.
