"The nation whose population depends on the explosively compressed headline service of television news can expect to be exploited by the demagogues and dictators who prey upon the semi-informed." Walter Cronkite in his 1996 memoir, "A Reporter’s Life."
"The misfortune with broadcasting today is that all — even including your network, which is dedicated to the news — do not take enough time to give us all of the facts and the background." Cronkite in a 2005 interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
