The VIetnam War was, essentially, three wars in one.

 

First, it was the rebellion by the Viet Cong against the Thieu (I think) goverment. This rebellion was crushed at the end of the Tet Offensive in 1966, and the VC were never again a significant part of the fight.

 

Second, it was a conventional land-grab war, that had burned hot and cold for two or three thousand years, and usually fought itself to a standstill right around the DMZ.

 

Complicating matters, the VC had made common cause with the North Vietnamese, facilitating the land-grab war.

 

Third, it was a critical campaign in the 70 Years War between the USA and the USSR. The Russian war in Afghanistan, some years later, was a similar campaign. The USA eventually won that war, but is now in the process of throwing that victory away.

Whilst surfing the internet I came across this as a reasons for the need of censorship :

 

" Media censorship is of great importance in society, top on the list being the protection of the minds of children of impressionable ages. Other reasons for censorship are; preventing TV addiction in teens, to reduce exposure of violence to society, to reduce racism and to ensure correct information is passed to the public "

 

" ensure correct information is passed to the public "

 

As has been pointed out in previous posts some journalists do distort the facts to suit, so does this mean they act as censors as well ?
