Oliver Stone/CBS’s “Untold History of America” debunked and excoriated by historians. Here’s the depressing part: this regurgitation of 1950’s Soviet propaganda, the depiction of the peace loving Joseph Stalin, the complete failure to mention the American Left’s demand for neutrality in 1939, the mourning for Henry Wallace, opponent of the Marshall Plan and NATO who lost his chance to be president when he was replaced by Harry Truman, etc. etc., could, as Roger Simon says in this video, only succeed on television because we’ve now had two generations of abysmally educated students who know nothing, absolutely nothing of modern European history – or any history at all. What troubles me is that kids “learn” from television these days, and this mendacious, fraudulent multi-part series on CB’s Showtime will constitute their history lesson of that era. In fact, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it’s not shown in their classrooms by teachers as stupid and ignorant as they.
