Question of the Day

Yesterday's question of the day asked: 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? That would be none other than the esteemed, late Walter Cronkite!

Congratulations to Matt Nagel for being the very first to answer that correctly!
