When a follow up front on important story Greg brought to our attention last night CBS as a reality show called the Amazing Race.
They fly contestants from country to country you compete.
The last episode they went to Hanoi Vietnam and the contestants had to memorize a pro -- song.
And look for clues in the wreckage and American B 52 bomber that was shot down.
Now I get outraged by guest MR -- but today we reached out to CBS we got no comment from the producer of that show a guy named Jerry Bruckheimer.
And up from Les Moonves we got -- -- and no big surprise there but let me just say this.
If the U you know you'll realize CBS to reform America's went down of that plane.
Two of them died for -- or imprison their 850000.
American Vietnam veterans alive today.
And you -- them an amazing big apology and average say one thing else.
I used to work for CBS.
I had a great deal of respect for this network but analysts say -- also was oppose the war Vietnam I was never in favor of -- take some of the mass murder.
I never was in favor of the idea that I was -- -- -- the policy because it was not gonna work and that's -- I was against it but the idea that you would somehow.
-- American screen that kind of stuff is outrageous I don't like arts exhibit this but -- say this abrupt CBS.
You guys a better apologize you say you have -- you've got no comment.
You have no comment on something -- outrageous is that.
And I'll tell you want think CBS.
Which it was a great network you don't wanna become known as the -- -- sympathize.

I kind of summed it up well check -- -- -- out and I got up for a as well said folks if you wanna get -- CBS please do I don't know how you get up just CBS yeah.
But there are treated over barbed -- submerge you whatever you need to do but they deserve to apologize and now.
And don't -- behind moon -- and Bruckheimer whatever his name is -- -- put it up up producers you guys were anti American and you deserve to apologize to bettors.
Yeah I that's Brett Bruckheimer has no idea but if what she finds out he should probably do something about that I really don't do something it every how did you not do something -- that.
Help -- kids not to.
I ended up all the things that people apologize for.
Today thank you would think that there's -- would be an obvious one that they -- wanna get in front of but they're just being you stubborn -- you know what it is it's it's called foxy syndrome.
It's like Fox News is covering it no one else is.
Delegates are hearing from.
I was plot that your courage and I had to which had to say it last night and tonight about it I think you're spot on it is an alternate leads is so disrespect on -- glorifying the butchery.
Not only of the people of Vietnam but the Americans that serve there faithfully and it is completely unacceptable I'm leaving -- with.
And you just think about this if you wonder why the outrage just think about if -- done this segment at you know when that when the hit the concentration camps one of the one of the death camps the outrage would be obvious.
What's there for.
