92? Wow. Nice long life. There aren't many out there now like him. RIP Mr. Cronkite.

Wow - I've been out and hadn't heard. Sad. I hope I'm as fortunate to live as long a life. Rest peaceful, Mr. Cronkite

"The nation whose population depends on the explosively compressed headline service of television news can expect to be exploited by the demagogues and dictators who prey upon the semi-informed."

That's an understatement! Even though he was, apparently, a liberal, you would have never known it from how he reported the news. Too bad today's newscasters cannot control themselves.

And yes, the "That's the way it was" really brought back lots of memories also.

Maybe per the other thread, unbiased should be the new word for the masses to google.;)
