celebrating trustworthy news

November 4, 2016 is Walter Cronkite's 100th Birthday. 

Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. was an American broadcast journalist, known as "the most trusted man in America".  

He is best known as anchorman for the CBS Evening News for 19 years. 

During the heyday of CBS News in the 1960s and 1970s, he was often cited after being so named in an opinion poll. (Wikipedia). 

With so many opinions today being bandied about - from unsubstantiated facts or hoaxes and outright lies - this is a good reminder for us all.
