Choice E changes the meaning of the sentence. It suggests that someone else (not cronkite but someone whose authority is no less than Cronkite's) has reported that half of Americans don't read books.

"No less than" is more idiomatic that "Not less than".

Clean A for me
No Less... than.... is an idiom ...
D changes the meaning
