I wonder what in the world this sentence is testing for. I would go for (A) since it sounds right to my ear, but I cannot explain.

I'll go with (A)

Someone has reported that half of all Americans never read a book. To lend credibility to the report, the author wants to convey that this has been reported by an established reporter, preferably someone who is well known (an authority in this matter). Here, Walter Cronkite is considered the authority in this subject matter.

OA is (A). No less than is supposed to be an idom, I think.
