    Walter Cronkite could have said the sky was red and people would have run outside to see it for themselves. I'm not sure why people believed him so much, but it was impressive.

    CBS hasn't had another like him.

    He's from a time when the media wasn't seen as duplicitous, and they had more integrity.

    Those, like him, who were the first on television were remembered much more vividly, I suppose because television was new.
