Just more Anti-American words from a has been liberal who laments that the (used ta be big) three news networks, can no longer influence the vast majority of thinking Americans. Maybe he should head over to Al-jazera(sp?) or CNN, he would at least be among his friends and peers.

The 86-year-old said the proliferation of cable news channels has advantages, but has harmed CBS, ABC and NBC.

Yes, advantages for the public in that there are alternatives to the leftist-schills who pose as "newsmen".

If Cronkite showed up in Baghdad, I think his welcome by the free people would include a party with a rope.

On NBC Tom Brokaw and Katie Couric were side-by-each at the desk reporting on the freedom of Iraq this morning. Tom informed the viewers and Katie that he had to "bail out and go to a studio across the street".
Katie responded, "was it something I said?"
Tom replies, "where do I begin."
Katie: "ouch"

". . . the proliferation of cable news channels has advantages, but has harmed CBS, ABC and NBC.

Dwindling viewership has led to budget cuts in news departments and less editorial control."

And what is the downside, exactly?
