Talk About Fake News !

New York Times (05/18/1984)--"The suit arose after CBS News suggested in a documentary broadcast Jan. 23, 1982, that the American military, and specifically General Westmoreland, had altered figures on the strength of enemy forces in Vietnam to make it appear that the United States was winning the war.

LA Times (01/15/1985)-- "Westmoreland Blamed for Faulty Troop Reports : Witness for CBS Testifies General's Policy Caused 'Massive Falsification'... Former CIA analyst Sam Adams told a federal jury here Monday that Army Gen. William C. Westmoreland caused a "massive falsification" of intelligence during the Vietnam War...
