We’ve come a long way from the days when Walter Cronkite was “the most trusted man in America.”
Uncle Walter was anchor of the “CBS Evening News” for almost 20 years, and he consistently topped the polls on the question of trust. He was there to guide TV viewers through so many huge events — the triumph of Neil Armstrong making that “giant leap for mankind” on the surface of the moon, the tragic death of a President on the streets of Dallas, and the resignation of another because of the scandal known as Watergate. There was never any question that Cronkite spoke the truth, or at least the best available version of it.
