I would be remiss if I did not dedicate this week’s column to Walter Cronkite. He was, in my view, one of the greatest journalists that ever lived. Of course, to have fully appreciated him, one needs to be among the baby boomer generation that grew up with Walter reporting the evening news, an Apollo space launch, and the Kennedy interview. He knew his stuff, was apolitical, and told it like it was. I miss the Cronkite evening news, uncluttered with headlines telegraphing across the bottom and highlight balloons popping-up here and there–not to mention the political bias, which varies depending on which station you are watching. Dissemination of the news, including on the business front, has deteriorated into sound bites, screaming journalists, twitters, Facebook postings, and now, the venerable Wall Street Journal has a sports page. I guess that, now that the Bankers are rolling in big bonuses again, they can focus on yesterday’s golf match.
