schema:description"Salant's CBS story picks up where Edward R. Murrow's leaves off. During his tenure, Salant confronted issues of enormous importance - Vietnam, the civil rights movement, and Watergate. He launched the first thirty-minute television news broadcast, the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite. He started 60 Minutes, still one of the most admired and successful newsmagazines on television. He created the news analysis slot for Eric Sevareid. He defended the independence of CBS News from internal as well as external pressures. Along the way, he hired Mike Wallace, Roger Mudd, Dan Rather, and Diane Sawyer and fired Howard K. Smith and suspended Daniel Schorr."@en

schema:description"Coming at a time of crisis in American journalism, when standards, public respect for the media, and audiences are decreasing, and news professionals are struggling to understand what went wrong, Salant's voice speaks boldly for a return to journalistic integrity - a message that has never been more timely."@en
