Obit Cronkite Walter Cronkite, once known as the “most trusted man in America,” is dead at 92. He passed away at a time of tremendous changes in the media, particularly at his beloved CBS. As he would say, “That’s the way it is.”

Cronkite was the gold standard of the “old guard” — serious journalists who lead the networks during their most transformative and influential period. Yet, he also became one of the first celebrity journalists — a trend that would turn news into a personality driven industry (as vividly shown by his friend and contemporary Barbara Walters). Cronkite’s celebrity and iconic status, however, was not so troubling because he was a serious and honorable newsman. He offered a sober and unbiased look at the news and world leaders. He was recruited in 1950 by the other great icon of his generation: Edward R. Murrow

Couric’s celebrity status, however, never translated into ratings for the Tiffany Network and she has racked up some of the worst ratings in the history of the network.

He reportedly died from cerebrovascular disease and complications from dementia.

  1. Cronkite was just another zionist jew who was chosen to be a talkng head. And part of all the secretive groups who choose our downfall (CFR, Bohemian Grove et al). Why on Earth would any non-zionist celebrate the life of this deviant, lying, spy? Especially if your skin is any color other than white, and if you are any sex other than male, and if you are any other religion than Ashkenazi jew (remember there is a very strict hierarchy of jews in Israel…)? This relatively small group of people laugh at our destruction; they enjoy it; their precious Talmud dictates it; they have literally perverted the “Judaism” practiced by the Biblical Israelites who were actually semites. Why are such a majority of American sheeple still so ignorant to the extent of the infiltration and rape of our country by such a parasitic, blood thirsty group? Bernie Maddoff is only one of thousands who have done what they have done. How do they do it? Control of the media, Congress, Cabinet, President’s Office, telecommunications, banking, Hollywood, Wallstreet. Truly an incredible business plan implemented by a relatively small group of Satanists over a couple hundred years. And this is by no means racist “jew bashing”. The majority of jews, especially Sephardics, are fine, hard working people who have mixed feelings about Israel and political Zionism to say the least. In fact, a good % of research and info about this evil scourge has come to light due to the courageous efforts and brave research by fellow jews, especially prior to the complete censorship of the MSM (pre-Depression era), and now fairly recently thanks to the internet. As an example, how many of you sheeple have read the English translation of the Babylonian Talmud??!! Eye opening to say the least…

    Wake up all people of color; all women; all non-zionists; all good hearted jews!!!!!! See the TRUTH.
