CBS Silent as Viewers Slam 'Amazing Race' for Airing Pro-Communist Song, Using B-52 as Prop
CBS has no comment regarding viewer outrage over an installment of The Amazing Race featuring a downed B-52 bomber as a prop and a pro-Communist tune sung to the show's contestants.
Sunday's episode of the Emmy-winning, globe-hopping reality show had contestants maneuvering around the B-52 wreckage as part of the Vietnam-based contest at hand.
The show also featured children singing the glories of socialism in front of the Amazing Race participants, including the following lyrics:
“Vietnam Communist party is glorious . . . Socialism is growing more beautiful with time. Follow the party’s step. Be loyal. Be pure.”
American Legion National Commander James E. Koutz fired off an angry letter to the network regarding the episode, but so far CBS hasn't responded to it or the outrage at large.
Bob Beckel, a liberal panelist on Fox News' The Five, slammed CBS for their programming blunder.
