Walter Cronkite, news icon of the 60s and 70s, dies at age 92

One of the most trusted names in news for decades during an era when America needed honesty and good reporting has died today at the age of 92. Walter Cronkite reported on the Moon landing, the assassination of JFK, and the Vietnam war, among countless other subjects. It’s a stretch calling ourselves “journalists” when compared to guys like Walter, but if we may be allowed to post our collective sadness at the loss of one of “our” own, there you have it.

Feel free to read up on the man and his history. A strange coincidence that he has passed away on the 40th anniversary and revisitation of one of his biggest stories.
