Walter Cronkite was called ‘the most trusted man in America’, and along with fellow CBS News icons Edward R. Morrow and Andy Rooney, possibly the most famous and influential TV news person in broadcast news history. Spend a FREE evening with Sanford Socolow, executive producer of Cronkite Productions, Inc., and former executive producer of The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, to go behind the scenes at CBS News, and hear what he thinks — and what Cronkite thought — about current trends in American news and culture (personal note — I have to wonder what Walter Cronkite would say about Snooki and the Kardashians). The lecture is Monday, November 14th, at the NYPL Mid-Manhattan branch, 6:30 p.m to 8:30 p.m., but get there by 6:15 for a seat. The program is called “And That’s The Way It Is…..”, which was Cronkite’s signature sign-off for decades. The NYPL Mid-Manhattan Branch is at Fifth Avenue and 40th Street, across the avenue from the Main Branch with the stone lions out front.
