PROF. JOSEPH CAMPBELL: Cronkite ‘the most-trusted’? Where’s the evidence?

As I describe in my 2010 book, Getting It Wrong, the “golden age” fallacy is that “flawed but enticing belief that there really was a time when journalism and its practitioners were respected and inspiring.” Such as the 1960s and 1970s, when Cronkite became a dominant figure in American broadcast journalism.

Actually, it’s when journalism became the least trustworthy, and most self-important.
