Cronkite was an esteemed announcer and anchor for many years. He was reporting for CBS at the time of the assassination. When journalist and anchorman Walter Cronkite told Americans "And that's the way it is," they believed him. Amidst weakening faith in the nation's institutions throughout the tumultuous period of the 1960s and 1970s, trust in media was at a high, reaching its peak in 1976 according to a Gallup poll. In 1972, Walter Cronkite was widely declared "the most trusted man in America." DECADES Network is proud to present an original, two-hour documentary that looks at the rise of Walter Cronkite and the evening news, and America's confidence in them.
