Skip to comments.The Terrible Truth About Walter Cronkite
Posted on 07/20/2009 6:58:23 AM PDT by AIM Freeper
It is wrong to speak ill of the dead. On the other hand, it is an insult to the intelligence of the American people to pretend that Walter Cronkite was the "voice of God" and "universally credible," as Mara Liasson put it on Fox News Sunday. The terrible truth is that Walter Cronkite symbolized liberal media bias and used that bias with disastrous consequences for our nation and the world. His latest cause was world government and the destruction of American sovereignty.
We found out after his retirement that he was not only a liberal, which was evident from his broadcasts, but a one-worlder. In appearances before the World Federalist Association, which favors world government financed by global taxes, he called for the U.S. to renounce "some of its sovereignty" and pass a series of United Nations treaties-many of which are now being pushed in the Senate by President Barack Obama. Cronkite called for an "international Liberty Bell."
He called for Senate ratification of the Treaty to Ban Land Mines, the Law of the Sea Treaty, the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the Convention to Eliminate All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Most important, he said, we should sign and ratify the Treaty for a Permanent International Criminal Court, which would violate U.S. constitutional rights by enabling foreign judges to prosecute American citizens and imprison them in foreign jails. Cronkite was determined to use the U.N. and its treaties to inhibit the ability of the U.S. to act in its own national security interests.

and thats the way it was....
Crankcase was nothing more than a very good propagandist, but a lying propagandist nonetheless.
Not surprised that the media is fawning, esp after the spectacle after Michael Jackson’s death.
WHY? Their death does not change the facts of their life. If they were lying liberal propagandists in life, they don't suddenly become truthful upon assuming room temperature.
Yes it is wrong to speak ill of the dead but the man was an anti-American left wing liberal and there is no debate about this fact. He was one of the important reasons why we were forced to lose the Vietnam war and the horrible human catastrophes that followed in South East Asia. We lost the Vietnam war not in the jungle of Vietnam but on the evening news broadcast by Walter Cronkite and the front pages of the New York Times.
We really need to move beyond this taboo. If something that someone who is dead did in life was indeed bad, there should be nothing wrong with speaking it, even if such speech is derisive and caustic.
The CBS special last night on Uncle Walter was so warm and fuzzy I got hives.
Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Marx, Engle, Lenin.
Mine was shorter, and I like the word Crankcase.
What infuriates me is that these overpaid, over celebrated, over rated media and Hollywood types that hate what the US is and want us to be like Europe and other countries, would NEVER have risen to where they are if under a one world govt. They have enjoyed EVERY success that our sovereignty avails them and haven't enough brain power to understand.
considering that he had a high level security clearance and was briefed on every aspect of the war in Vietnam, he was highly qaulified to proclaim to the American people that the war was unwinnable. (sarcasm, of course).
Look what happens when you give the media voice where they have no place.
“Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Marx, Engle, Lenin.
And Conkrite. “
Birds of a feather.
The CBS Sunday Morning program had several segments on him that were so saccharine I almost went into a coma. Of course, they never touched his traitorous Tet Offensive comments. As to the article, it has long been my observation that elderly people of every political stripe seem to go fuzzy with advancing age. Conservatives should compare the Barry Goldwater of the 1980s with the 1964 BG campaign to get a sense of what I mean.
Repetitive redundancy! :)
Mara is from NPR. Nuff said.
Think Hitler, Stalin, Mousilini, it would actually be a crime to speak well of them.
