Associated Press bureau chief Malcolm Browne's Vietnam gear.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the start of the Vietnam War, and the Newseum marks the date with a new exhibit exploring how the media reported the country’s first televised war. Photos, news footage, music and artifacts tell the story of a divided nation, and debunk some myths about the era. The exhibit ultimately poses the question: did the press lose the war? We speak with the museum’s director and a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist about how this war changed the way we cover – and perceive – conflict.
