ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the controversy over a documentary video "The Uncounted Enemy: A Western Deception," aired by CBS Broadcasting Inc. The gist of the documentary was that commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam, General William Westmoreland had lied to former U.S. President Lyndon Johnson about the size and strength of the enemy. TV Guide Magazine group Inc. delivered a powerful analytic rebuttal, charging CBS with editing and otherwise shaping its evidence to support its preconceived view that Westmoreland had indeed lied.
