Death of a true journalist...

Integrity...

Decency...

Humanity...





















Not only was his rich baritone a comfort during uncertain and tumultuous times, but so to was his commitment to quality and to unbiased, untainted reporting.

I know that the world of Twitter and TMZ and Facebook are here to stay - but I must admit a wistful remembrance for a time when journalism held a different place in our world.

It isn't simply generational, it's the loss of a fundamental relationship with the truth and taking the time to dig an inch below the surface to find it.


RIP Walter Cronkite
