Was he really "that" great? I mean, don't many of today's journalists do it just as good? I mean, take the news anchors at CNN for instance. Was Walter really light years ahead of them? And if you want to talk about anchors choking up, that's technically unprofessional and violates the journalistic code of ethics.
This guy was from back in the day where there was very little competition. He was the most watched out of 3 people! Thats legendary?
: I really remember him choking up when he announced President Kennedy died. I was pretty young, so it affected me a lot. What he was talking about meant something to him personally. . . . I don't think you see a lot of that anymore.
: : Cronkite was 92 years old.
