Vietnam: The First Television War
January 25, 2018 By Jessie Kratz, Posted In - The 1960s, Remembering Vietnam, The 1970s
Commentary by Madie Ward in the National Archives History Office.

The Vietnam War (1955-75) was a time of great controversy in the United States. Cold War tensions ran high as the country relentlessly fought against the alleged evils of communism.

At the same time, advances in video and audio recording enabled both easier and more news coverage. From 1950 to 1966, the percentage of Americans who owned a television skyrocketed from 9 percent to 93 percent as televisions became essential for everyday life.

With the proliferation of televisions, news networks strived to have the most exciting, dramatic, and attractive stories. They competed for the finest reporters, highest-rated equipment, and largest number of viewers. To succeed, they had to do something unprecedented: on-site coverage of the war in Vietnam. For the first time in American history, the news from the front lines was brought straight into the living room.

So why was Vietnam called the first "television war"?

During World War II, morale was high. Camera crews stayed in noncombat areas to show the happier, more upbeat side of war. The stories were broadcast as motion pictures shown in theaters. And the newscasters shared only good news and reported bad news with a cheery disposition.

Government censorship over the media influenced this outlook-if the press wanted access to stories about the war, they had to receive credentials from the military. This ensured that the news didn't report anything that the military did not want disclosed to the public. Big stories like the A-bomb stayed out of the news until after the war ended. The focus of the media was high morale and support for the war effort.

In contrast, the television news networks had a bleaker view of the war in Vietnam. After the Tet Offensive in 1968-which the public saw as a defeat-reports turned unfavorable toward the war effort. The censorship that was in effect during World War II was much laxer by the 1960s. Camera crews were on-site almost constantly in combat zones. Journalists wrote day-to-day coverage and recorded their stories in the field. This gave Americans a more realistic glimpse into the lives of their soldiers, and they didn-t like what they saw.

The moratorium to end the war in Vietnam was a massive demonstration and teach-in across the United States against the United States involvement in the Vietnam war. It took place on October 15th, 1969, followed a month later by a large moratorium march on Washington.

The moratorium developed from Jerome Grossman's April 20th, 1969 call for a general strike if the war had not concluded by October. David Hawk and Sam Brown, who had previously worked on the unsuccessful 1968 presidential campaign of Eugene McCarthy, changed the concept to a less radical moratorium and began to organize the event as the Vietnam Moratorium Committee with David Mixner, Marge Sklenkar, John Gage, and others.

At the LBJ ranch in Texas, Walter Cronkite questions former President Johnson about the 1968 cessation of bombing over North Vietman.

Begun in 1965,the bombing was supposed to cut down infiltration of South Vietnam and produce negotiations. The 36th President recalls that even though the results were not satisfactory, any decision to halt the bombing had to wait until the enemy launched a major attack and failed. Early in 1968, the Tet Offensive provided the right moment.

The President reviews former Secretary of State Dean Rusk's proposal in March, 1968 to stop the bombing without reciprocity. He also discusses recommendations by then Secretary of State Clark Clifford and others, including UN Ambassador Arthur Goldberg. An unofficial brain trust was also assembled to advise the President, who announced a partial bombing halt on March 31st, 1968.

Other topics include Senator J. William Fulbright's opposition to the President and public opinion concerning the war in Vietnam.
