Walter Cronkite

Walter Cronkite was the epitome of class and honesty.  As "The Most Trusted Man In America" he parlayed news to the masses and while we all have our biases, he was able to convey news without that bias.  People felt like when they listened to him they were listening to an honest account of what was really happening.

Nowadays we are pushed news through very thin veils of bias.  We see news as the respective people want us to see it, not how it necessarily is.  Fox News is always pushing a conservative agenda and most other news sources push a very liberal agenda.  We are unable to watch news that is unbiased anymore.

We are forced to get our news from online sources now, taking the news anchor out of the situation.  It is sad that we are unable to trust the people who are telling us what is going on in the world.  For that reason, I miss Walter Cronkite.
