The difference between people who watched the news during the Vietnam War specifically in 1965 through 1970 and those that preferred to watch Television is that their cultures changed drastically over this time period this varied depending on how they received their news . Most people that decided to read the newspapers received different types of news coverage on the Vietnam War. Their information varied because it was written in the old fashion way and so people published some pictures and their report on the war there was only so much they could publish. Most reporters that were going to write about the news on the newspapers made sure to specifically report information that would not negatively impact the millions of people watching it. It was crucial that they made sure to strictly report all the non-violent scenes if they were filming there or they would deliver positive news that made people believe that it was a good thing to keep our soldiers there. The government at the time was fearful of rising Anti-war protesters and organizations which is why they tried to keep all the news that got around positive and sugar coated instead of telling people the truth about the war events. Most people that watched the television expected to find information that would tell them it was a good thing to have all those soldiers there, they did not want to hear the truth which was that millions of innocent lives were being lost and the government was still keeping them there, “For people that solely relied on the television for their news they would be shown the positive side of the war and only reported on areas that were inactive” (Ron 2016). The television was known to show the bravery of the soldiers that were serving there and since it was the first ever war to be broadcasted they chose to show people specific non truthful television news. In an article about the specific details the broadcasts from this time showed states that, ” These incidents far from typical of Vietnam coverage blood and gore were rarely shown…Network concerns about audience sensibilities… inaccessibility of much of the worst of the suffering to keep …”horror of war” off the screen.. “american boys in action” was the story, and reports emphasized their bravery and their skill in handling the technology of war.” (Hallin para.4). All these television watchers stuck strictly to their beliefs and they hardly changed their minds they were mostly the ones that defended the war. This however was not the view that people who read the newspaper shared, they were the ones that opposed the war because they received the more open real news those people opened the paper and could see the images that depicted how serious the war was in Vietnam, that is what reporters showed the public. They were not restricted to show the patriotic side of the war that showed the soldiers fighting for their country or the events during the war that did have any intense violence.The newspapers reporters wrote about what they saw and experienced while covering the war, they tried to publish it openly on the paper. In the 1960s people began to slowly steer away from receiving their information via newspapers because by that time the television had been introduced and everyone wanted to be able to visually see everything, they were drawn to the graphics. “…Respondents were asked from which medium they got most of their news in 1964 58 percent said television, 56 percent said newspapers…1972 64 percent…television…50 percent newspapers. ” ( McLaughlin) By the mid 1960s most people ignored the newspapers but those that did stick to that source were able to find more truthful information. Most of those people joined the Anti-War movement after they were angered by the stories and information that they would read about. The pictures they would put on the headlines would illustrate the graphic details and events from the war for most people it was the only way to see what the war was like and how the soldiers there were going through. The information given on the newspapers were explicit ones that television viewers were never able to see which lead them to have negative viewpoints on the war compared to the negative viewpoints that people that watched television had. The Anti-War movements that were created had a huge impact on the government because they would protest non stop in front of the white house and would create chaos that is why the government chose to cover some true information on the war. ” A large scale movement against the Vietnam War was developed…the US government took it quite seriously…had a major impact on US policies.” (Lowe) Before the Vietnam War most people were in agreement with the US that they had a justable reason for being in Vietnam for so long the ones that had this type of view were the ones that received their news via television. The ones that preferred to get their newspapers from the newspapers were exposed to the political viewpoints and arguments which encouraged them to question the United State’s motives. Both of these sources were able to efficiently deliver news and information about the war to people. On rare occasions television media did show some violent images to people and they were able to see the true side of the war and sometimes the newspapers did lie about their information. They both changes people’s perspectives on what they thought of the war and what they saw it was actually saw it was like. People often think that the television had no influence over people’s culture, they believe it was different factors such as the music that was produced and propaganda that was published at the time. The protests that took place sparked interest in people to explore different views and begin to find more information about the war. During 1965 to 1970 people that watched television had positive viewpoints on the war and they received the edited part of the news. Most of what was shown was required to be edited before it was shown. People who read the newspapers had a negative viewpoint of the war and they joined movements to try to stop the US from keeping the war going and keeping the soldiers there. Although these people did have different cultures and some of them changed from the start of the war to the end, they both brought awareness and some reliant information on the Vietnam War, there were some people whose culture never changed and they were not impacted by the Vietnam War news.
