Walter Cronkite

Walter Cronkite was an American broadcast journalist, best known as anchorman for the CBS Evening News.  He was once considered to be “the most trusted man in America.” I believe that title now lies with Jack MacBrayer.

Here are some of the things he covered:
World War II
The Nuremberg trials
Vietnam War
Watergate
Iran Hostage Crisis
President John F. Kennedy’s death
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death
The Beatles musician John Lennon’s death
Extensive TV coverage of the U.S. space program

One thing that didn’t get extensive coverage is his upper lip. Though Walter did have a steesh, it appears his eyebrows provided more coverage than his mustache.
