    establishment. Therefore it was Huntley Brinkley for us at dinner time. I was too young to form an opinion about that kind of stuff then. But, all I know is, that the news media would do well if they could have any one of those three working in today's broadcast media.

    Walter Cronkite has proven to me that over the years he bucked the "establishment" when he saw that it was dishing out BS. I don't care what dad thought back when I was a kid.

      I lost whatever respect I had for David Brinkley when he sold out to ADM, so take him out of the above-mentioned triad of journalists.

      Walter Cronkite never when down that commercial road, he stayed true to his profession.
