|Plot Summary of A Reporter's Life|
|"Working for thirty years as the CBS anchorman, Walter Cronkite saw a lot of news and helped Americans understand what was happening in their world. He writes about important events that occurred throughout the second half of the twentieth century and explains how they were presented on the television news as they were. Cronkite also writes about his childhood and his family, and even includes historical information about the development of television as a medium for news reporting."
