UPDATED RESPONSE TO POST
Errr… Walter Cronkite? Are we talking about the same guy? The guy who got on national TV and said the TET offensive was a defeat to the US and we lost the war, when in fact we smashed those communist bastards so hard they were just about to unconditional surrender because we killed so many of them in 2 weeks they couldn't handle it. That is, until Uncle Walter got on national tv..
