3. Vietnam
One of war reporting's finest hours was Safer's 1965 piece from Vietnam in which he showed U.S. Marines burning the village of Cam Ne. The pivotal broadcast, on the "CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite," was one of the realistic reports that helped change America's view of the war and changed war reporting forever.
