Pioneering broadcast journalist Walter Cronkite has died; he was 92.
With his passing, a gold standard for integrity in journalism has been lost. So many of us grew up with his face in our living room.
So many of us learned of the big traumas in our nation’s history–Jack, Martin, Bobby, My Lai– from him, he delivered the bad news directly to us, in our own homes, it was an intimate act.
He was giant, an icon. He will be, and already is, missed.
