New Biography of CBS Newsman Walter Cronkite Dents His Halo via The Daily Beast: http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek...

While this book paints a less than flattering portrait of Cronkite, I suspect much of it is far from surprising. Today, we're so inured to taking our heroes, both past and present, with a very sizable grain of salt.

In any event, I can't wait to read this biography. I'm very anxious to see if my admiration for Uncle Walter can withstand the test of passing time: the ever capricious reality that emerges with each passing day.
