For a commie symp, Cronkite really let his Moscow masters have it. Of course, it was probably all a show since communist agents like Cronkite were disciplined and dedicated to world conquest. Little did Walt know that an actor-turned-political speaker, with the help of a rich car dealer in California, was then starting the resistance, and would destroy the global plot in 25 years time.
All that aside, I love the Soviet depiction of the American south of the period: "A stronghold of racist and other fascist scum." Nice. And the beauty part, many of these strongholds still exist, south, north, east and west, and are well-represented on political and sports radio shows. And the Soviet Union? Gone, daddy, gone. Further proof of American superiority.
