Thanks to Bob Beckel and others at Fox News “The Five” for speaking out about the Amazing Race featuring a downed American B-52 in their reality show. CBS Has Apologized to Vietnam Veterans and the American People for its poor judgement
That was “The Five” co-host Bob Beckel’s take on CBS’s apology for an “Amazing Race” episode set in Hanoi, Vietnam that many found abhorrent.
“I think it’s belated to say the least,” Beckel said on ‘Fox & Friends’ Monday morning. “[But] they did it at the right time… in prime time.”
On the March 17 episode, the twisted metal of a downed American bomber was 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.”
