At the Popular Culture Association conference one week ago, historian Richard Raack and I  dissected the Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick video series on Showtime. In his article at Accuracy in Media’s website you will find his introductory essay and the video of the session.

Ronald Radosh is an Adjunct Senior Fellow at The Hudson Institute, and a Prof. Emeritus of History at the City University of New York. He is the author or co-author of 14 books.

Thank you for the link. I took the time to watch the video and read the web page and found them well worth my time. It was a pleasure to hear all the facts supporting your argument that Stone and Kuznick did a disservice to history with their ridiculous series.

One of the weaknesses of articles at PJM and other blogs is that they often only state a bottom line assessment. They say that something is bad while asserting factual errors WITHOUT having the time/space to detail those factual errors. A reader has to wonder if the conclusion is justified given that the reason for the conclusion is often severely abbreviated.

Having heard your evidence, I now have no doubt that your conclusions are indeed justified. I have not seen the Stone/Kuznick series but I am sure now that it will not be worth my time. It is clearly based on lies and wishful thinking, not what actually happened in the real world.

The Stone/Kuznick series is clearly an offense against anyone who feels like you - and I - do that opinions must be based on facts. If you want to dismiss Harry Truman as the cause of the Cold War or view Henry Wallace as the man who could have prevented it, facts have to be provided to justify those claims. All the Kuznick and Stone have done is indulged in wishful thinking. It's clearly just a device for them to push people further to the Left without any valid justification whatsoever.

Thank you again for taking the time to refute Kuznick and Stone and for revealing the truth.
