63. and you think that it was?
Edited on Fri Jun-25-10 01:37 AM by William Z. Foster
Are you claiming that we were getting in-depth coverage and the true story about Viet Nam on TV during the 60's?

Were you alive during the Vietnam War? Have you done any reading at all on the topic since then?

During the 60's, we worked hard at finding and reporting the stories about Viet Nam that the mass media was not covering. Were you taking the same attitude back then toward those efforts that you are taking today against all critics and dissenters? Where were you? Where did you stand? I cannot imagine that anyone who was engaged in the struggle against the war would think that the Viet Nam war was adequately or accurately covered on TV. It is not possible.

Convince me - to my satisfaction and I will be the judge of that - you were with us back then. That should be easy to do, and there would be no reason to refuse to do that. PM me if you want. Convince me.
