If you are getting your history from for-profit, corporate, media, you are not getting history. But this is hardly the end of this McHistory charade. Kennedy will air elsewhere and individuals lacking the interest, energy and time to get their history the old-fashioned way will mistake this for-profit mockery of history as the real thing. The problem, of course, is not that fictional accounts of historical events are produced or enjoyed. The problem is that the educational system in our country—made even worse by the net-non-neutrality and corporate, for-profit, “news”—is so atrociously underfunded that here, as perhaps nowhere else, viewers lack the tools they would need to distinguish fact from fiction. Truth is what sells; and what sells quickly becomes the truth. So, kudos to Robert G and the others who brought this monstrosity down. A shame that it is one skirmish in a battle, and a minor battle in a war, that we all are losing.
