Walter Cronkite's regret

What do I regret? Well, I regret that in our attempt to establish some standards, we didn't make them stick. We couldn't find a way to pass them on to another generation.
A short video of Cronkite making this remark is here. Hat-tip Greenwald, who compares Cronkite's critical coverage of the Vietnam war to the self-appointed role of today's US media stars as spokespersons for the US government.
