In this video clip from Ask Steve, the question of whether or not Walter Cronkite was the reason we lost the Vietnam War was addressed. When he went to Saigon right after the offensive he wrote a report that stemmed this question. This was a result of The Vietnam War being the first televised war, which gave Americans the ability to watch it from their living rooms, which left a lot of areas for information to be misinterpreted.
