Fifty years after King was assassinated, we review King's lesser known legacy and how it is used against activists today.
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.
