Who Fills the Cronkite Void? ABC Reporter Says Michelle Obama
Newsbusters.org ^ | 7-21-09 | Tim Graham

The Washington Post’s Style section conducted a survey of who could fill the most-trusted void left behind by Walter Cronkite. A series of liberal-media heroes were named: Brian Williams, Bill Moyers, Jim Lehrer, Barbara Walters, Fareed Zakaria, Garrison Keillor, and Jon Stewart. But several people skipped the media stars and selected the Obamas. ABC Nightline correspondent Vicki Mabrey nominated Michelle as a Cronkite replacement: "Rosie the Riveter for our times in a designer gown. You just want to be her best friend forever."

Who fills the void left by Cronkite?

Lady Ga Ga or maybe Lorezo Lamas.

Zakaria? As in Newsweek? As in “The Post American World”?

Nothing like being a toady to the powerful elite

They just have to keep puckered and try not to smell while kissing rear.

“Rosie the Riveter for our times in a designer gown. You just want to be her best friend forever.”

You mean I’m not the only lonely person with no self esteem who needs famous people to live vicariously?

The disgusting thing I saw was an article by “Gunga” Dan Rather on Walter Kronkite published in the USA today (IIRC).

I don't care that Dan Blather replaced the Wonkite; he should be the embarrassing uncle that you should wait till he went to the bathroom to take the family photo.

Instead journalists show that truly they have no shame, and there is no depths one can plumb that will make one not an honored and revered member of their despicable cadre of conspirators.

What Cronkite void? I haven’t missed Cronkite since he retired. We’d be better off trying to fill our moral void.

When they say Michelle fills the void, are they referring to a certain part of her anatomy?

“Rosie the Riveter for our times in a designer gown. You just want to be her best friend forever.”

That is one of the strangest fantasies I’ve ever encountered. This person needs help.

“The first name that pops into my head is President Obama. I trust in him. I believe him. . . . Trust doesn’t mean you have to like someone, just that you believe them.” — Jeffrey Banks, New York menswear designer.

....My husband] Bill and I both agree fervently that we trust President Obama. Absolutely. I like what I perceive as his deep thoughtfulness.”— Deeda Blair, philanthropist and wife of William McCormick Blair, former U.S. ambassador to Denmark and the Philippines.

“Barack Obama. I respected him when he ran for office, and I respect him now. He is a man of integrity, he communicates well, and he is optimistic without being unrealistic.” — Stacy Keach, star of “King Lear” at Shakespeare Theatre Company.


HUH?!!!
