For the dad who reminds you of the most trusted man in America

"Cronkite," Douglas Brinkley's bestselling biography of newsman Walter Cronkite, is now in paperback. Sample passage: "He was as familiar to TV watchers as 'The Star Spangled Banner' at the end of late-night programming before the static ruled. Whether it was chronicling astronaut John Glenn's orbit of Earth, lamenting the JFK assassination, sharing his post-Tet offensive doubts about the Vietnam war, dubbing the Chicago police 'a bunch of thugs' at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago, or celebrating the nation's bicentennial, Cronkite was the clarion voice in network news."
