Vietnam War - The Impact of Media

Vietnam War - The Impact of Media

Length: 56 min 28 sec

Vietnam War - "The Impact of Media" explores in detail the 'media distortions' due to television's misrepresentations during the Vietnam ... all » War. It rebuts the view promoted by PBS's 13-part documentary series, "Vietnam: A Television History". The rebuttal also applies to "The Ten Thousand Day War" series.
"The Impact of Media" is a must-see for historians and politicians alike. The late President Ronald Reagan lauded this rebuttal video when he watched it and said that it's "something all Americans should see".

Wild Thing's comment........

Our major news media are a disgrace and nothing but propaganda mills. They have blood on their hands for their part in helping the enemy. We never lost a battle in Viet Nam! It was our own politicians, the media and the godless, communist hippies that messed things up.

The lies are tremendous many we already know, but it also tells of how planned those lies were, how sound effects would be added, so many things. All done by the media! UNFORGIVABLE!

I am so very grateful to our Vietnam Vets, to all of you. I am so very proud of you, what an honor it is to know you.

....Thank you Mike (Nam Recon vet )

Hanoi and Washington DC were treasonous twins in the 'Rules of NON Engagement'! Thank GOD President Nixon authorized B-52 massive airstrikes OVER Hanoi in Linebacker II (ARC LIGHT) ... to bring the NVA to the Paris Peace Tables for the last time!!!

It's truly disgusting that someone got a cob shoved so far up his butthole that he had to start dragging America through the mud.
The media is so bent out of shape and the masses of the easily led and those who eagerly follow every word are just doing all over again.
I remember Robin Williams in Good Morning Vietnam, when he was doing the news and it was edited to the point of what he could and could not report and when he reported the bombing of Jimmy's bar, they turned him off and got him out of there--for telling the truth.
Yes, everyone should watch this, but they won't. I dare every American to watch it with their families and see what the media did to us. I double dog dare Americans!

Unfortunately, there will be a similar video produced in the future called Iraq War - "The Impact of Media" . Those who don't learn from history are forced to repeat it. This country hasn't learned from history, so .........

Chrissie. Thank you ever so much for your tireless support of Vietnam veterans, today we have a distinct advantage, direct feedback from troops in the field via the internet and a host of bloggers who challenge every lie the media put out. Thank you Mike for this truthful video.

Ditto's Jack, Thank You Chrissie.

We had been in and out of Khe Sanh since January of 67 and the hill fights took place I believe in April so I guess that is their frame of reference. Until I came home in July.

I remember the Media reporting in 68 on Khe Sanh, saying it would be the Marines Dien Bien Phu, to that I said BullSh$t.

This wasn't the French they were reporting on it was the United States Marines but this was OUR press always trying to find a reason to destroy the US Military.

An aside, When they made the movie Gettysburg I was extremely disappointed when Martin Sheen was to play R.E.Lee I thought Charlton Heston would have handled the role with much more dignity.

Mark yes it sure was bullshit oh they were so awful.

Oh me too with Gettysburg, yes Heston would have been much better.
