Twitchy reported on the uproar over last week’s episode of the “Amazing Race” reality game show, in which contestants were told to memorize pro-commie lyrics while racing toward a downed American B-52 bomber in Hanoi, Vietnam. Veterans’ groups were rightly outraged. Folks on both sides of the political aisle brought the shame hammer down on CBS. Tonight, the network apologized for its “insensitive” decision. That’s an understatement.

If anti-American, anti-military CBS was really sorry – they never would’ve filmed the episode bit.ly/Zm8s8P

Good advice:

Apology accepted, CBS. And next time, have that producer use their brain…. fb.me/FfnrrAXd

And good question:

Good to hear CBS apologized. I wonder how many people saw the apology, however, and how many decided never to watch The Amazing Race again.
