NPC Remembers Cronkite and Hewitt


Rather, Kalb, Schieffer and Schorr last night at the National Press Club.

Marvin Kalb moderated a discussion between Bob Schieffer, Daniel Schorr and Dan Rather last evening at the National Press Club called “A Tribute to Walter Cronkite and Don Hewitt.”

They shared their favorite stories and memories of the “most trusted man in America” and the creator of “60 Minutes.” And they reacted to comments the President made at Cronkite’s memorial service in New York last week. “We find ourselves wondering how he would have covered the monumental stories of our time. Would he have been able to cut through the murky noise of the blogs and the tweets and the sound bites to shine the bright light on substance?”

They agreed with how the President ended that thought too: “And somehow we know that the answer is yes. The simple values Walter Cronkite set out in pursuit of, to seek the truth, to keep us honest, to explore our world the best he could, they are as vital today as they ever were.”
