News Against Vietnam War
Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?
News stations during the Vietnam War reported on what was happening to the troops and what they were experiencing while being over in another country. They elaborated on there living conditions and what the troops were doing for each other, on how men saved there brothers in arms and how some would stay up while everyone else slept. The News also reported how people were reacting at home, how people were shredding their Draft Papers. Plus how people were saying the war was wrong and they were gonna take a stance against it.
The Media reported on the negatives, how people said it was wrong to go on with this war and what people had to face on the other side. They reported on people saying they weren't going and all the protests that were happening. When the Tet Offensive occurred, media jumped on it and people started protesting against more than they ever had. Even though the Tet Offense was the turning point and allowed the United States to push forward.
Troops only went to Vietnam to prevent Communism from spreading and even not knowing that, the war was still a waste of our time. The Vietnam War was a conflict America shouldn't have intervened in because it didn't affect us in the slightest. The country still became Communist, the only thing that changed is our population and resources went down. Vietnam wasn't suppose to be an all out war, yet we sent resources and people over there time after time even though we said we wouldn't get involved. Vietnam War should have never happened and the only thing that was accomplished was wasting more lives then needed and wasn't resources that we'll never get back.
