Vietnam News Coverage

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89_3DgW_7mg

Is this news video coverage neutral, or does their seem to be some kind of underlying opinion embedded in the message? When we talk about author's purpose, we want to not only look at why the author wrote the piece but why they chose to write the piece in a certain style. Does this video effectively convey its intended message?

Come up with your own article or video from the Vietnam War Era and post it below. In response to what you post, come up with your own article and be sure to be thinking of author's purpose when you write it. Remember, this time YOU are the author!
