CBS-TV's amazing race to the far left.

I do not watch this program so I just picked up on the news that CBS-TV's show Amazing Race staged a visit to a downed B-52 memorial in Hanoi, Vietnam and managed to insult every patriotic American in the process. To make matters even worse the show's contestants were required to learn a Communist propaganda song and sing it. It is bad enough to watch left wing propaganda spew out on the so-called news shows but now it is part of entertainment? I am without words to express my disgust.
As Fox News reminded us:  Almost 60,000 Americans lost their lives in the Vietnam War.

‘Amazing Race’ episode set in Hanoi sparks outrage over use of B-52 as prop, communist song

Published March 21, 2013

The popular CBS reality show "The Amazing Race” is under fire for featuring an episode set in Hanoi, Vietnam, where contestants go to a B-52 Memorial, which is the wreckage of an American bomber plane shot down during the Vietnam War, to find the next clue in their televised round-the-world journey.

In the episode, the twisted metal of the downed plane is treated as any other prop, with a bright ‘Amazing Race’ ‘Double-U-Turn’ signed planted in front of it, signifying to contestants the next phase of their scavenger hunt.

The show also had contestants learn a song that was performed for them by children in front of a portrait of North Vietnam communist leader Ho Chi Minh, with subtitled lyrics that included “Vietnam Communist Party is glorious. The light is guiding us to victory.”
