CBS apologizes for show glorifying Communism

Following WND’s report on CBS’ “The Amazing Race” taking contestants to Hanoi, where they sat through a communist presentation,  and went to a display celebrating the death of Americans, the network has issued  an apology.

Liberals and conservative alike had condemned the show.

During Sunday evening’s episode of the show, which features teams in a global  competition, the network apologized to Vietnam veterans for the previous week’s  episode.

“Parts of last Sunday’s episode, filmed in Vietnam, were insensitive to a  group that is very important to us: our nation’s veterans,” said Phil Keoghan,  the show’s host. “We want to apologize to veterans – particularly those who  served in Vietnam – as well as to their families and any viewers who were  offended by the broadcast. All of us here have the most profound respect for the  men and women who fight for our country.”

Dan Gainor, vice president of the Media Research Center’s Culture and Media  Institute, said while it is good that the network apologized, the fact that it  was produced in the first place shows they are out of touch with the majority of  Americans.
