    Even if there were another Walter, I don't think there could be another Walter. It's a different time.

    Walter trivia: what legendary character actor did plays with Cronkite as a student at UTexas. Hint: played three bandits.

    And a good one, which I meant to second, even if it came out crooked.

    No disagreement here.

    Most still knew he was around but it appeared to me that CBS forced him into retirement to appease Rather.

    Even though Cronkite was still quiet effective

    That was my point.

    What goes around, comes around.

    That's the thing, though: no one ever really pushed him out of the American conciousness. Even after he retired, Walter continued to be "The Most Trusted Man in America."

    And rightfully so.


    I'll always remember how he eventually took a stand on the Viet Nam war once he believed it wasn't worth the effort anymore.

    Dang - his call of the Moon Landing was epic. Sorry he couldn't be part of the 40th anniversary.
