Sinopsis de THE UNCENSORED WAR: THE MEDIA AND VIETNAM de Mark Twain:

Vietnam was America's most divisive and unsuccessful foreign war. It was also the first to be televised and the first of the modern era fought without militar y censorship. From the earliest days of the Kennedy-Johnson escalation right up to the American withdrawal, and even today, the media's role in Vietnam has continued to be intensely controversial. The Uncensored War gives a richly detailed account of what Americans read and watched about Vietnam. H allin draws on the complete body of the New York Times coverage from 1961 to 1965, a sample of hundreds of television reports from 1965-73, including television coverage filmed by the Defense Department in the early years of the war, and interviews with many of the journalists who reported it, to g ive a powerful critique of the conventional wisdom, both conservative and liberal, about the media and Vietnam. Far from being a consistent adversary of government policy in Vietnam, Hallin shows, the media were closely tied to official perspectives throughout the war, though divisions in the gover nment itself and contradictions in its public relations policies caused every administration, at certain times, to lose its ability to manage the news effectively. As for television, it neither showed the literal horror of war, nor did it play a leading role in the collapse of support: it presented a highly idealized picture of the war in the early years, and shifted toward a more critical view only after public unhappiness and elite divisions over the war were well advanced. The Uncensored War is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the Vietnam war or the role of the me dia in contemporary American politics. A groundbreaking study of the media's influence on the Vietnam War .Overturns the conventional notions about the media's role in the war .Draws directly on a huge body of newspaper and TV coverage
