    The Amazing Race is a great show with fabulous producers. I didn’t think the program in question was insulting, but I am not a veteran. The apology they ran in Sunday was appropriate and classy. Love that show!

  2. liz says:

    I think having to apologize for Vietnam was rather confusing. Soldiers fought for peace a freedom – isn’t the sight of the two countries sharing a cultural exchange and recognizing the past, the realization of that struggle?

    • rowan77 says:

      The problem was the use of the wreckage of an American B-52 and the propaganda song as entertainment, not that the show was shot in Vietnam.

      • Mike says:

        The apology was needed, but it was an honest mistake and I’m glad they recognized that.

        • rowan77 says:

          Oh, I agree. I don’t think it crossed anyone’s mind that they were being disrespectful. They didn’t think beyond making compelling television.

  3. Sara says:

    I get that this is an American show, but it was interesting to see the other side of the story

  4. Jacob says:

    honest mistake? It was plain stupidity. Sara what do you think the surviving pilots from that b-52 went through? Jerry Bruckheimer is old enouph to know better.

  5. JBC says:

    Very glad to hear that Amazing Race and CBS apologized, as did Jerry Bruckheimer. Our Vietnam Vets don’t need another slap in the face. Hopefully they will always be respected, they have been through enough, as have their families. I salute ALL of our Vets.
