Question of the Day

Yesterday's question of the day asked: Which journalist received the Pulitzer Prize in 1964 for coverage of President John F. Kennedy's assassination? That would be Merriman Smith (né Albert)!

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Hats off, also, to Hiram ReisnerDan FreedmanJulie Webb-PullmanCarrie GrayIrene DeBlasioHollywood Highlands, and Allan Priaulx for answering it, as well!

As for today's question, here it is: Although the accuracy of this account has been questioned, during the Vietnam War, President Lyndon Johnson is alleged by some to have said, "If I've lost [blank], I've lost Middle America." Fill in the blank: who was the news anchor whose opinion was so important to Johnson?
