The Cronkite Syndrome

by Conrad Black

From my most recent NRO article, on a new biography of Walter Cronkite: “His vast cult of Middle American unaffected worldliness was a scam: He influenced the color and sequence of stories with his liberal biases, carefully disguised behind his earnest, homely mask. Further, and I knew him slightly and can attest to this, the dirty little secret about Walter was that he was not intelligent outside his craft.”

Whether you agree or disagree, your comments are, as always, most welcome.
