Born this day in 1916, this man was the premiere example of what broadcast journalism should be. In a Gallup Poll conducted during the mid-1970's, 72 percent of the American people trusted him more than the President of the United States or the leaders of both houses of Congress. This was why he became known as the most trusted man in America. Turn on your TV now, and it will soon become blatantly clear - there is no one like him on the broadcast landscape today. Here he is announcing the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963. If you're short on time, fast forward to 5:00 minutes in, and you will see his professionalism struggling to find balance with his humanity. And for fun, if you have time, don't miss Johnny Carson's hilarious Cronkite spoof immediately afterward.
