The point is, he was alive to see it... so why would he "crap" as a reaction? The poster seems to be of the belief that Cronkite died in the 60s or 70s or something.

I see. Good point. Author of comment should have said, "He'd have crapped his pants, if somebody were able to show him back then that ...".
