Was media a cause to why America pulled out troops from Vietnam?

Media would definitely be a reason that the country had a negative point of view of many events that took place in Vietnam. The reasons for pulling out of Vietnam tie to our troops being put into a dangerous situation for an extended period of time and the number of casualties being so high. There were nearly 17,000 KIA during 1968 alone and the US was involved in the war for 10 years. I have seen information that states Nixon pulled the troops due to the Vietnamese winning the war, but that could be the opinion of the author.
