Vintage CBS interview debunks Kennedy/Vietnam myth

Here is vintage footage of Walter Cronkite's famous interview with President John Fitzgerald Kennedy on Sept. 2, 1963, for the CBS Evening News.

This debunks the myth that arose after Kennedy's tragic assassination that he favored withdrawal from Vietnam. The segment is particularly poignant when viewed today, given what we know would happen on Nov. 22.

Also, compare this with "interviews" that air these days on various "news programs."
