This is interesting. I thought this post would get more hits...I wonder if people see the title and think it is the ranting of some right-wing lunatic (me???)
This is not a hoax-it is a real, honest to goodness documented speech. Most people I don’t think have any idea, but a lot of highly placed liberals do.
The fact that he mentions George Soros so prominently in his speech stains him forever in my mind, the Tet Offensive not withstanding.
Perhaps they read it, but don't comment because they don't know what to say -- or they were afraid to open the thread because they didn't want to see the kind of really low and disrespectful bashing the dead that too many Libs get here when they go.
I was honestly quite happy to see that while many disagreed with Cronkite politically as I did, no one has gone for the really nasty and low comments whatever they may have thought.
My attitude is that I really don't care what Cronkite's private political beliefs were, as long as he kept them to himself while he was on the air -- which he did. That's a far cry from the dishonest, vain and narcissistic advocacy journalism that we see today.
