Harry Smith - is an American television journalist, working for NBC News, MSNBC, and CNBC as a senior correspondent. He hosted the CBS News morning programs, The Early Show and its predecessor, CBS This Morning, for seventeen years. In July 2011, Smith left CBS News to become a correspondent for NBC News and the now cancelled newsmagazine Rock Center with Brian Williams. He has also served as an anchor for MSNBC, conducting daytime live coverage of breaking news and events since first appearing in November 2015.
I have to say, Harry Smith is my all-time favorite news person. I first started watching him on CBS This Morning back around 1998. He was the only reason I continued to watch that morning show (and later The Early Show) and I was very disappointed when CBS revamped the show in 2010 and came up with a whole new crew. That was the end of watching that show. I was pleasantly surprised to find him with NBC about a year later. I don't know ... there's just something down-to-earth about Harry that makes me feel like I can believe what he says.

It's a little hard to read The New York Times headline below, but I couldn't find a larger image. And when I tried to enlarge it, the editor here always just made it smaller.
Here is the online version of the headline -
Astronauts Return From Moon After "Greatest Week in History" (On July 24, 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins successfully splashed down into the Pacific Ocean and were safely recovered by the USS Hornet aircraft carrier. The world celebrated their safe return, but did you know that they were immediately quarantined out of concern for “Moon germs?”
