With all the issues in the world and lack of trust in news media in view, I was having a conversation recently with my son and I told him a story. It went like this:
Once upon a time, there was a man. His name was Walter Cronkite and he was called 'the most trusted man in America' and it was true. He earned that name, people trusted him. He was the most trusted man in America and he was a journalist.
That was the punchline. My son thought I was being funny but it is a true story. There was a time when people trusted the news. Imagine that.
