Comrade Cronkite outed

  1. What many of us already knew. The commie prick completely mis-reported what happened during TET, and used, or should I say abused, the power of the press to sway public opinion. The war was winable immedialty after TET had we made a major push. The enemy was crushed at that point. Instead Cornkite and his ilk pushed the war is lost agenda, and so it was after that. But hey, what do I know. I was just a another guy in the mix mash of blood and guts. Cronkite...worthless piece of shit in my book.

    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.
