I only think it fitting to remember Walter Cronkite in the eyes of the network that bore him: CBS. With his passing is the end of symbol in journalism, the era having passed long ago. Forty years ago, 2/3 of Americans watched Cronkite as Apollo 11 landed on the moon. While mass media and Twitter might have been a conduit to news distribution of Michael Jackson’s death, no one will remember the man or woman who delivered that news to them. But history will remember Cronkite the way it remembers all pioneers. Rest in Peace.
