Cronkite Targeted by Soviet Intelligence
Accuracy in Media (June B AIM Report) ^ | June 16, 2010 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on 06/28/2010 6:08:10 PM PDT by valkyry1

The late CBS Evening News anchorman Walter Cronkite is named in a just-released FBI document from 1986 as being targeted in a Soviet “active measures” campaign against President Reagan’s anti-communist foreign policy. Cronkite is named as a possible member of a U.S. delegation that would sign a pro-Soviet “People’s Peace Treaty.”

Cronkite, once known as “the most trusted man in television news” because of his influence during the time when three network news programs dominated the national dissemination of news and information, bears a great deal of responsibility for the American military defeat in Vietnam and the communist conquest of that Southeast Asian country.

The term “active measures” was mentioned by Yuri Bezmenov in his now famous interview on Soviet subversion of the western media.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

Agreed, along with Hanoi Jane Fonda, they were practically joined at the hip.

Cronkite must be wiped from our history as a communist collaborator in my opinion. His blasphemous nightly screaming that we were “Losing the Vietnam war” by killing poor viet cong was a moment of marxist victory in American media.. Our Military WON the war!! It was the DEMOCRAT cut off of funding the South AFTER WE LEFT!!! that “lost the war” and handed the South to the communist North. The war was over!!— We got our POWs and pulled out all but 5000 troops!! This all happened after we bombed the little commies until they were forced to surrender and sign the Paris Peace accords!! THE DEMOCRATS CUT OFF THE FUNDING TO THE SOUTH AFTER WE LEFT!!!!! Cronkite was a TRAITOR!!

“Cronkite Targeted by Soviet Intelligence”

He always struck me as being blessedly free of the ravages of any sort of intelligence...

Doggone it. Isn't the author old enough to remember seeing Cronkite's "news"casts?

Cronkite, once known as “the North Vietnamese Communists' most trusted man in television news”

Gen. Giap described the American media as his most important guerrilla.

Back when they kept the marxists in American media a "secret".

Laugh while you can you scumbags, its going to be the 1950's all over again.

I wonder what happened to this plan? I see Salisbury and Moyers are mentioned as well as possible “delegates”.

Yesterday: Self-righteous hippies demanding imperial America quit waging war in Vietnam.
Today: Bloody communist dictatorship in Vietnam after America pulled out. The hippies, like the red diaper doper babies that they are, of course take absolutely no responsibility for their actions.

Yesterday: Soviets using personalities in the media.
Today: Muslims using personalities in the media.

The enemy within is alive and well.
