By 1965, Ruben Salazar was a Times correspondent in South Vietnam. In this memo, the consulate in Hue was aware that the newsman had filed a story that would report on a Vietnamese general’s support for a student newspaper. The consulate even identified whom it believed were Salazar’s sources. In a Nov. 12, 1965, article filed from Hue, Salazar reported that dispatches of journalists were routinely leaked after they were filed in telegraph offices.
