No, the Cronkite post-mortem that's needed is for the zombies who conjured up the hollow rapture and the living dead who fell for it.
Harsh words? You bet.

"If I've lost Cronkite, I've lost middle America," almost every Cronkite obituary approvingly quoted President Lyndon B. Johnson as having said in response never mind that Cronkite was flat-out wrong in his reporting.

I remember when the book came out and I saw her on Book TV oncspan2 but I could not find the boo at the bookstore.
Think my daughter found it for me on Amazon for Father’s Day last year......
