Obituary: Walter Cronkite


Walter Cronkite, who anchored network news every weekday evening from 1962 to 1981 and was once called the most trusted man in America, died Friday. He was 92.

His death has caused many, including the New York Times, to think about how television news—and news coverage in all media types—has changed since he was a central part of many people’s lives, telling them and reassuring them about such events as wars, moon landings, and, perhaps most famously, the assassination of a president.
