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.
