FBI Files Discuss Cronkite Aiding Vietnam Protesters
Legendary CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite allegedly collaborated with anti-Vietnam War activists in the 1960s, going so far as to offer advice on how to raise the public profile of protests and even pledging CBS News resources to help pull off events, according to FBI documents obtained by Yahoo! News.
The documents, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, say that in November 1969, Cronkite encouraged students at Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla., to invite Maine Sen. Edmund Muskie to address a protest they were planning near Cape Kennedy (now known as Cape Canaveral). Cronkite told the group's leader that Muskie would be nearby for a fundraiser on the day of the protest, and said that "CBS would rent [a] helicopter to take Muskie to and from site of rally," according to the documents.
The claims are contained in an FBI memo recounting a confidential informant's report on a November 1969 meeting of a Rollins College protest group called Youth for New America. The group was planning rallies near Cape Kennedy on Nov. 13 and 14 the latter being day of the Apollo 12 launch from Cape Kennedy, which President Nixon would be attending as part of a nationwide Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam. That protest action culminated in a huge march on Washington on Nov. 15.

I wonder if this will make the news.
Not reporting the news - making the news.
We all knew the Cronkite was a communist sympathizer . Now we have proof.
Prominent “Media Creatures” since the early 1950’s have long supported vice addiction, sedition,espionage, sabotage, treason, assaults on Christianity and other Western values.
Doubt it. This is not a surprise by any means.
and this differs from William Randolph Hearst and the sinking of the Maine HOW exactly??
The MSM lost me in 1968 when it gleefully predicted that General Giap would do to the 5th Marines at Khe Sanh what he did to the French at Dien Bien Phu.
Traitorous bustard knows the score now.
So... what else is new? Between him and Hanoi Jane, the outcome was molded to fit the libs’ desires.
I don’t know what Cronkite saw but I was in III Corps and the Saigon Military district during Tet and all we saw were dead gooks.
I despised him then and I despise him now. If I was close to his grave I would offer to water his rotting head.
He did it then, and you all know this crap is happening now.
We knew this. Pathetic.
Was it clear the U.S. was winning when Commie Walter began his sedition?
(Cue the Huge Manatee)
Walter Crankcase was a liar, and a servant of the father of lies.
Walter Duranty-esque BUMP....
I am glad to see verification.
I always hated “Uncle Walter.”
Someone should put The Order of Lenin on his grave. He earned it as much as anyone.
What was the name of the Vietnamese General who wrote a book about the Tet Offensive .. claiming that he believed Vietnam HAD LOST THE TET OFFENSIVE .. but when he heard Cronkite say that America had lost the Tet Offensive .. Vietnam regrouped and relaunched an attack - AND WE ENDED UP LOSING 58,000 AMERICAN SOLDIERS.
Cronkite wasn’t just a Communist sympathizer, HE WAS A TRAITOR. He was one of those Hate-America people .. and he never lost an opportunity to make America look bad.
FOX was ready to run a SPECIAL PROGRAM regarding Cronkite, after he passed away, but I sent them a scathing email demanding to know why a person who’s careless words had caused the deaths of 58,000 of America’s best and brightest was due ANY such accolades. They never ran it (at least not that I know).
No surprise. Cronkite and CBS also donated plenty of air time for John Kerry and the Vietnam Veterans Against the War to tell lies about US war crimes.
Anyone doubt he partnered with Kerry and Fonda?
58,000 American family should file a class action lawsuit against c-BS....That might get some attention!
Cronkite, Rather and Hanoi Jane are traitors. Especially Hanoi Jane.
That’s great! Thanks for posting that.
I remember hearing him speak in an interview about his book - but I just couldn’t remember his name.
Kerry is a traitor to America and should be punished accordingly.
What scum ..
