Here's a gem: the Guardian/Observer interviews legendary news anchor Walter Cronkite, 88, who covered WWII, Kennedy's death, man's first step on the moon - and the rest. Money Quote
In 1968, Cronkite's unusually personal report on the Tet offensive was credited with swaying American public opinion towards pulling troops out of Vietnam. President Lyndon Johnson, watching in the White House, was apparently heard to say: 'If I've lost Cronkite, I've lost Middle America.' (The broadcaster has since quipped: 'I was a little offended when I heard that. I considered that if he lost me he must have lost all of America').
