This paper examines how the New York Times coverage of the Vietnam war played a vital role in supplying the nation with factual knowledge during the Vietnam conflict and how these facts helped turn the American public against the war.

From the Paper:

"What was unknown at that time, but has since come out, was that President Lyndon B. Johnson was conducting a massive publicity campaign to dampen the growing domestic concern and mounting dissidence against the war ("The Tet Offensive" B03). Johnson, himself, publicly stated in late December that "the enemy is not beaten, but he knows that he has met his master in the field" ("The Tet Offensive" B03). The observations made by the editorial staff of the New York Times have proven to be particularly on target when proven by the test of time and the advantages of having access to secret documents form that period."
