Skip to comments.Buh-Bye, Walter Cronkite: He Lost the Vietnam War for U.S. on TV, Had American Blood on His Hands

I just heard the news that former CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite died. And perhaps I will be one of the few with the guts to be real and say it: I'm not sad to see this overrated liar go. Buh-bye.
Cronkite enjoyed a long and glamorous life, unlike many of our late teen and 20-something American troops against whom he editorialized on a nightly basis. They died on the killing fields of Vietnam in no small part because he contributed to the video demoralization of America and the resulting lack of commitment to help our boys win the Vietnam War.
I'm sure that Cronkite will be remembered gushingly by all of the liberal mainstream media robots whom he spawned and who idolize him (and probably many gutless idiots on the right, too). In so many ways, he is their Michael Jackson, minus the creativity and talent. In life, they already exalted Cronkite far, far beyond what he deserved and completely ignored his awful transgressions against our country.
Walter Cronkite Defeated America on TV But the man they called "The Most Trusted Man in America" was really something far different: The Most Destructive Man in America. And that is how he should be remembered. He had the blood of thousands of American men--some of them really just boys--on his hands.

He almost made it to the 40th anniversary of Chappaquiddick.
I agree with her 100% and thank her for telling it like it was.
Tell it Debbie!
Maybe a certain person won’t either and I won’t be upset in the least if he didn’t.
Walter Cronkite is another one who had better have a VERY good drainage system around his grave site as there are millions of Viet Nam vests who are waiting patiently to water the flora an fauna in that immediate vicinity!
Goodbye to him and goodbye to types like him controlling what we hear.
Now watch in about six months it comes out that he was a deep cover commie working for the NKVD during WW2 and later the KGB.Would anybody be surprised?
Deb is telling it like it is.
Burn the paint off’em Deb.
Excellent post. The old man sailed with the Clintons and pimped for the world’s communists and dictators. Goodbye.
She’s right about Cronkite; wrong about Palin.
In December 1972, Ronald Reagan called President Richard Nixon after watching Walter Cronkite's coverage of the Vietnam War on "CBS News," telling Nixon that "under World War II circumstances, the network would have been charged with treason."
Jane Fonda.......Walter Cronkite......both opposed the Viet Nam war....and many brave young men died as a result of their efforts. No RIP for you, Walter......you do not deserve it!!!!!
Not entirely. The VC and NVA were defeated militarily at a much greater cost of lives than was necessary in part because of traitors like Uncle Walter. Nevertheless, they were defeated. In fact, the VC ceased to exist as a fighting force after TET. But the collapse of South Vietnam and its army occurred after American troops were gone because of the traitor liberals that controlled the government after the 1974 Congressional elections (Watergate and all that).
Thank you, ma’am for telling like it was.
It is beyond belief how America worships its traitors and Communist fellow travelers. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that good ole Walter was a KGB mole. But it really doesn’t matter...
I will remember him for being a ‘journalist’ but I will likewise remember him for his liberalism, bias, and use of yellow journalism...
So Walter bites the dust....who are the next two then?
....always comes in three’s ya know :)
Probably has a big fanbase with the Khmer Rouge though.
