THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S DEATH
On the show this morning we remembered that dark day in Dallas 50 years ago today. There's no shortage of coverage on tv and the interwebs right now. In fact, CBS news will be re-running continuous coverage from 1963 today (and over the next several days) on cbs.com. To save you some time, we're posting two key moments from CBS' coverage of the assasination. The first clip has Walter Cronkite breaking in during As The World Turns to announce that The President had been shot. The following clip is Cronkite announcing that President Kennedy had died. It's powerful stuff.
