Walter Cronkite, one of the last greats in the media, is dead. He was 92. Mr. Cronkite has one of the most celebrated careers in the news world, full of great journalistic moments. But for me, one of the most poignant moments in his career was when he reported on the death of JFK:

If the CNNs, Fox New Channels, and MSNBCs of the world could steal a page from Mr. Cronkite’s pagebook, maybe there would not be so much antipathy for the media.

RIP, Walt. I hope the media can one day live up to your standards.
