[Veterans, conservative newscasters, politicians like Arizona Sen. John McCain, and plenty of the show's fans were upset that the show filmed at the site of a crashed U.S. B-52 bomber, and featured a segment where players had to listen to a pro-communist anthem being sung in front of a portrait of Ho Chi Minh and then find one of the song's lyrics in a sea of propaganda posters. Vietnam War veteran and American Legion National Commander James E. Koutz sent a letter to CBS Thursday, asking that the network apologize for "its disgraceful slap-in-the face administered to American war heroes.]

Not only do liberals like those at CBS lack morals and integrity, but they evidently lack the common sense to comprehend this idea might just not have been a good one.

You just ruined a perfectly good point by bringing politics into your dialogue.

No, the two go hand in hand, whether you want to admit it or not.

It was Bob Beckel, a self-avowed liberal, that made the loudest complaints, idiot.
Of course he's a Christian, and on FOX, so I'm sure you've disavowed him from the Moron Club by now.

IMO, he had a very good point that he should have expanded on. I'm sure that you patriots would agree that there is something wrong with helping these commies to profit off of our country.

Now that we've agreed on that, let's see who else has thumbed their noses at this country..... The American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam - Hanoi Chapter!

What happened to "Oh my gaaaawwwwd the horror..."??

You found out a liberal, even a FOX-employed liberal, criticized this stupid decision and suddenly it becomes "a very good point" blah blah blah ....

Just shut the hell up, Bob.

Are we really going to concern ourselves with the levels of ethics on a TeeVee reality show?

Here's how I combat that Dingle; I don't watch them. Problem solved. Reality shows are for the lonely, feeble-minded and the easily entertained and quite often show poor judgement when it comes to ethics or morality.

Being surprised by this story is kind of like being surprised when you pick up a snake in the wild and it turns around and bites you.

Next time don't pick it up.

Sir - I rarely agree with you but in this case I must. These reality shows are not worth your viewing, let alone your emulating values or behavior.

How telling self-imposed ignorance and inactivity would be your one sage bit of advice, pothead.
