“Cronkite at 90” On CBS Tonight

By Brian 

“That’s the Way It Is: Celebrating Cronkite at 90” airs tonight at 8pm on CBS. Tom Shales likes it.

Interesting graf: “Katie Couric, who of course occupies Cronkite’s old anchor chair, makes a few comments and is seen at one point kneeling at Cronkite’s knee, as if she were the first woman to integrate the Knights of the Round Table, with King Walter presiding. Less expected are appearances by Dan Rather, who in 1981 succeeded Cronkite as anchor and who proved explosively controversial in the role.”
Here’s the full review.
