Death of a pompous blowhard

While many are in mourning, and Big Media (the BM for short) is treating the passing of Walter Cronkite with a reverence usually reserved for Presidents and religious leaders, I say, "Good riddance to bad rubbish!" Vulture, please explain! Gladly.

Walter Cronkite was a self-important pompous blowhard. His signature sign off - "...and that's the way it is!" - is like nails on the chalk board to me. No, you pompous asshat, that is definitely not "the way it is". You've just presented 30 minutes (less commercials) of news hand-picked by the liberal cognoscenti at CBS News in accordance with their world view. You have NOT, in any way, shape or form, told us "the way it is".

In retirement, Walter Cronkite continued to bloviate on subjects far and wide. He always took the most liberal viewpoint, and he was always critical of those most likely to side with the actual American people versus the political cognoscenti leading us towards the eventual One-World Socialist Dystopia.

Think I'm kidding? Then check this out (in particular, watch the video -- it's an eye-opener).

Walter Cronkite was the very picture of the Upper East Side Limousine Liberal. For all of his journalistic accomplishments, he ultimately succumbed to a lethal case of hubris. He believed himself an oracle of the truth. He believed his own press clippings.

Once voted "The most trusted man in America", Walter Cronkite was, in fact, a Fifth Column traitor to America. In the video I referenced above, he voiced his opinion that, if supporting One-World Governance was to be aligned with Satan, he was "glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan." Let's hope he got his wish.
