Walter Cronkite Dead too?!?!?!!?
Cronkite was 92, but still, can we get a breather? This means a bunch of tributes from the media so they can feel important. Lots of nostalgia in this death as he might be the most famous reader of news ever. Not investigative reporter, but a fricking newsreader. That voice. The lack of emotion that so many newscasters seem to express nowadays. Just reading the frickin' news sinteading of editorializing all of the time. It's a nice coincidence that one of the biggest names or faces in the American Mythology of what makes up the news dies in the midst of many newspaper closings and death spiralling ratings for tv newscasts.
