“And That’s The Way It Is”

Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr
November 4, 1916 - July 17, 2009

Once known as “The Most Trusted Man in America,” Veteran CBS Newsman Walter Cronkite died today after a lengthy battle with Cerebrovascular Disease.

Cronkite is probably best known for being the Newsman who informed the Nation about the death of President John F. Kennedy.

From Dallas, Texas, the flash, apparently official: (reading AP flash) "President Kennedy died at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time." (glancing up at clock) 2 o'clock Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago.

"Vice President Johnson *cough* has left the hospital in Dallas, but we do not know to where he has proceeded. Presumably, he will be taking the oath of office shortly and become the 36th president of the United States."

Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. dead at the age of 92.

And that’s the way it is, July 17, 2009
