10. True.

One of the most significant points from that era was when Walter Cronkite noted, on air, that the war in Vietnam was a stalemate. LBJ told those around him that he had just lost "middle America."

Nixon wasn't able to exercise any degree of power over the media, at least for long, because he was so hostile towards them. Those using Reagan knew that by making their puppet appear friendly and patriotic, they could change the nature of war reporting.
