what's the different when using "plus" and the word "and"?
the choices to the problem were:
1. Cronkite was known for his honest presentation of the news PLUS his reassuring tone
2.Cronkite was known for his honest presentation of the news AND his reassuring tone

The sentence requires a conjunction to join those two phrases.
