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 Reagans anti-communist foreign policy. Cronkite is named as a possible member of a U.S. delegation that would sign a pro-Soviet Peoples 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.

Hell, he was soviet intelligence.
He should have been tried for treason.
The term “active measures” was mentioned by Yuri Bezmenov in his now famous interview on Soviet subversion of the western media.
the headline screams friendly fire
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.
Someone should dig him up and hang him.
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...
Burn his sorry bones!
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.
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: Soviets using personalities in the media.
Today: Muslims using personalities in the media.
The enemy within is alive and well.
AIM is a reliable & trustworthy site. I believe Cliff.
We can’t let them slink back into the shadows again.
That reminds me. I watched my dog kill a mole this morning. He reared up and pounced on the mole to pin it to the ground, then grabbed its head, pulled upward and bit down at the same time. There was a satisfying crunch and no more mole.
Donahue and Ted Kennedy are mentioned too.
Cronkite’s first encounter with Soviet KGB operatives would have been in Moscow during the late 1940’s when Cronkite worked there as a reporter for the United Press.
That is very true - and the truth will come out one day.
walter was a prig. Of the first order. And the article we are responding to does not surprise me in the least
Thank you. The Cooper - Church Amendment to the budget gutted South Viet Nam twice— Once in 74 and then again in 75 -both times cutting 50% from assistance. They had no supplies— bullets or parts — It was murder of a free nation we had liberated . The DEMOCRATS knew that the media would shield the murder from the the Sheeple. The DEMOCRATS could not allow Nixon and Kissinger to have the historical victory. Cronkite was on the team to cover it all up so the Sheeple would not see it. He was despicable!! That is the truth. Look it up!!
God Bless you Brother or Sister. We were there— Not in Viet Nam but we witnessed the assassination of our victory by Walter Cronkite. He was a communist in my opinion. I know your pain but we both know the truth and I will not kick the dead horse to restate that truth. I have felt very alone— I have two college degrees and a wonderful wife that has heard my speeches on the War and the propaganda that stole the truth. Sleep well my friend in the knowledge that at least there are two of us.
“At Columbia University in 1983, a young Barack Obama wrote sympathetically about groups involved in the nuclear freeze campaign and the dangers of militarism and expressed the hope for total disarmament. As President, he is pursuing the goal of a world free of nuclear weapons, which many experts say is unverifiable, and just signed a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty with Russia that he wants ratified by the U.S Senate. Obama is opposed to modernization of the U.S. nuclear deterrent.”
How did they get copies of the Columbia paper?
I dont know but it must be out there and the MSM is hiding it.
We allways called him Walter Crocked tight.
Useful Idiot Ping!
Cronkite certainly was useful to the Communists, and the more-so because he was trusted by so many Americans. His propaganda would not have been allowed during World War II.
Don't forget Comrade Kerry. He had direct discussions with the commies. Makes you wonder which other government people are traitors.
Was this not the same effort that recruited Ted Kennedy to launch a PR effort on behalf of the USSR against Reagan’s foreign policy?
