This video from the USA says about itself:
In the aftermath of the Tet offensive, Cronkite had traveled to Vietnam to interview soldiers and civilians. Returning to the United States, Cronkite shared his observations with the American public. In favor of diplomatic negotiations, Cronkite rejected President Lyndon B. Johnson’s optimism for further military deployment to end the standoff between U.S. and Viet Cong forces.
In a 1996 interview, Cronkite remembers the effect his editorial had on President Johnson, who was reported to have said, “If I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost Middle America.”
Well known United States journalist Walter Cronkite has died.
