The Most Trusted Man In America

Walter Cronkite dies at 92:
At one time, his audience was so large, and his image so credible, that a 1972 poll determined he was "the most trusted man in America" - surpassing even the president, vice president, members of Congress and all other journalists. In a time of turmoil and mistrust, after Vietnam and Watergate, the title was a rare feat - and the label stuck.
Appropriately Mr. Cronkite's voice is the voice I remember while watching the Moon landing on TV in 1969.
