Agnew speaks at GOP Committee Meeting, Des Moines, Iowa, November 13, 1969
Introduced by Governor Robert Ray at the Mid-West Regional GOP Committee Meeting in Des Moines, Iowa, Vice President Spiro T. Agnew articulates his dissatisfaction with the television medium and how newscasters are presenting the news. As a significant influencer on public opinion, Agnew highlights the difference in reaction to those who heard President Richard Nixon's speech on Vietnam themselves, versus those who heard about it from a news program. He closes by challenging newsmen to criticize themselves and encouraging the public to tell news stations to provide unbiased and objective stories. This version has some commentary overlapping the speaker.
