Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

For what it is worth your article is simply common sense. I do not recall that during WWII the public air waves broadcast Tokyo Rose or Lord Haw Haw. Apologists for terrorists have no lack of public forums to expound their views but they need not be presented under a cloak of reasoned debate. There is no legitimate reason for hearing on a news debate type program an apologist for the murder of thousands under the pretxt of free speech. Tony Blair had it right, too bad our news stations have it wrong. To appear ith thes apologists would be tantamount to legitimizing their views.
