    Walter Cronkite, CBS news anchor - dead at 92

    Walter Cronkite has died. He was 92.

    I'm sure most of you are too young to even have seen a broadcast by him. Dan Rather took over the CBS anchor position in 1981.

    He represented a time where the media questioned what the government said instead of just reporting it.

    Godspeed, dude.

    I am one of those ones that was too young to see this man do his newscast, but the name is epic amongst popular culture, I remember that line "And that's the way it is." and I never seen him on tv ever, not even in old videos on you tube or anything.
