It should be A.

'Walter Cronkite' is an Authority.

A is good. The rest are just plain bad.

- 'Nonetheless an authrority', 'not less an authority than' and 'an authority not less than' all are just awkward ways to represent 'no less an authority than'. B,D and E are out.

- 'nevertheless authoritarian' is awful. It does not even represents the meaning 'no less an authority than'

Yes, straight (A). Whoever made the claim is as much an Authority as Walter Cronkite.

Go with A.

The speaker is trying to convey that the person who reported is no less as an authority than Walter.
B changes the meaning. Here Walter has reported.
C wrong for obvious reasons
Not less doesnot go with the sentence
E framed badly……. A is better
