I'll keep -- -- the guy says.
It's a W turn yeah it's a double mistake.
Because -- going having the contestants go there in the first place so it's either ignorant.
And I could maybe at a triple you'd turn our -- mistake because now it instead of just saying.
We meant no offense and we should we will be more sensitive in the future and -- this -- as we would never talk about it again.
Now you have.
Primetime shows covering it I would also imagine that there are a lot of Iraqi and Afghan war -- Who will stand with the Vietnam -- and say we're not gonna.
-- -- stand with them because this could happen to us in the future we want people to know what our sacrifice was and how we fought for our country our -- -- what our country asked us to do.
I do think that these producers.
-- you'd be probably be coaching me and is a type of sushi and POW was a new song by one direction.
So I would -- -- me out -- reality show where they send contestants to a location where Americans have died in the first contestant.
To recognize and refuse participation.
Gets the punch the producer in the face.
I was thinking about the contestants will be great if one of those contestants had to actually came forward Danny is that you know what I -- -- either I did -- now are.
And an executive who does know better.
But to your point in it does appear like they know better.
And that's what's upsetting because people aren't taught the lessons of history and the sacrifices that are troops -- that's why.
If it is about fox.
It's really insulting because it's not about Fox News it's not about the viewers it's about the veterans who made the sacrifices it's about the atrocities it's about the evil.
And you know Bob.
I'm sure a lot of people understand it and what's most shameful is now they do they have no excuse that executives can't say we didn't know we weren't sure.
They know they're choosing to not say anything and that's that is what is upset that I.
I don't think it's about fox Jerry Bruckheimer is not a twenty something he's he's he's been around he knows what's going and a frankly I don't think he's.
-- said I think he's he's just a guy who blow it this is more about character.
Character meaning Bruckheimer and ours Moonves both you guys price should do one -- you should stand up and say we blew it we're sorry but do they have a character do it.
Well it I just say that I I got thousands thousands sweets I haven't had that many it's is as I started to -- thing.
And Dana got returned honestly not safe for the first time on 99% were favorable which for me is exactly the gun just went on this pick up -- -- ask you something here Greg that you made good point here about.
Do you think it is really possible that they made a decision that there audience -- younger not Vietnam connected and therefore this is just -- to go ahead.
I I think it was if anybody -- date date their assumption was their audience is too passive.
What it operates under the assumption of what's really the big deal that was forty years ago what -- cares.
I think that's how they look at -- the product of the problem is there's so many outlets for that kind of opinion in fact if you look at.
Most colleges -- outpost of anti military units and an anti an anti Americanism.
That we come to accept and I think all we're asking is that it is just not put it in the reality shows we like to watch with our family stiff back and you know.
They've got they could have gone to Vietnam yeah and even if the Vietnamese government said okay we're gonna have -- go here and here.
But they have scripted the show differently -- -- -- is said.
And we know what happened here and -- about and you're not for this we are for freedom and an -- they kind of made it.
-- -- to -- the -- -- a teachable moment yes it is a -- he makes -- -- so that's you know don't you think that old even if older veterans are older viewers are hearing about the story.
Do you think that they are talking about it to their kids the younger generations I think that it's actually permeating in getting.
Getting larger and I think they're hoping let's ride it out over the weekend you know and -- -- find some bets.
To go up against the contestants.
The Amazing Race and see who would win you -- -- -- I don't want to do is say an absolute.
Absorbed in this and again I -- matter believe it or not every -- -- about it but you know.
If I said as you fortunately but Vietnam defined my generation and that was the defining moment and not just -- 150000 Vietnam veterans but for an entire generation the baby boomers and it was a painful painful experience for everybody.
It's -- very least you could have thought about that said Vietnam -- that almost have to America part.
And maybe this is not -- -- of course we should go and -- the members that backed up so I'm sorry go ahead.
No guys can say -- I haven't heard a single person not -- include Pepsi CBS three and a Twitter that says.
Well it's not that big of a deal like I don't nobody is actually I think this is what's weird -- -- but nobody's defending it.
And where and silence yet have never been -- yeah I think by not saying anything.
Violence -- they're screaming that they either endorse this you know what they know they screwed up so which one isn't it yeah they could get away -- vitamin -- did did they go about we contact him twice right three times three times didn't at one point they said we have no comment -- I think every does not I.
I'll add a comment and -- -- the that's a college lady noticed it isn't no comment a pretty -- statements about it's basically.
The show and enjoy a show on the hand I don't -- a comment if it's national security related you can say no comment and with the we'll get back to you later but that this is basically a shut up.
(%expletive) about what I -- that.
-- -- I would like to know -- -- are your thoughts on this whole issue receive yes it should CBS apologize to Vietnam vets.
Go to FaceBook dot com slash the five FNC and -- our poll we'll let you.
And the chance to -- to CBS a message about what you think.
So far more than 3000 and you -- did take in the poll.
I think something like 3000 said apologize and fifty said don't.
