Walter Cronkite, "The Most Trusted Man in America," Ill

Legendary journalist and former CBS Evening News anchor Walter Cronkite is reported to be very ill. The 92-year-old turned the CBS nightly news into one of the most respected news shows in the country. He was known for ending each broadcast with his signature phrase, "And that's the way it is."

Over the course of his career, Cronkite covered events ranging from the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. to man's first steps on the moon.

Watch a brief clip of Cronkite discussing his experience covering the first lunar landing:
