6. I'd like to say you are right, but alas, you're not
The only reason the swift boat liars made hay is because the media allowed it to become a story by covering it for weeks on end. No coverage means no one gets noticed. The protests against Vietnam mattered because the media brought into our homes, along with the carnage, on a nightly basis. it turned many people against the war, who were either on the fence or not paying attention or for the war, when they got to see others tell the truth.
