What has happened to the History Channel? Once their stuff was worth watching. But I've read better comic book accounts than the stuff in this.
Let's see. 10 things you didn't know about Lincoln--he slept with men. Puh-leeze. Does nobody know that at most boarding houses in the 19th century and before, men slept in beds together? If they really wanted to say something most people don't know about Lincoln, why didn't they explain the rationale behind the overblown Emancipation Proclamation, which didn't free a single slave at the time it was written and was only put out to shut up the more rabid Republicans? What about Abraham Lincoln BEST UNKNOWN QUOTE, when he told Horace Greeley in an 1862 letter "If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it"?
10 things you didn't know about JFK. He took drugs. Anybody with a devastating back injury takes prescription meds. It's not like he was dealing on the street, but to hear the stuff on this show you'd think he had pushers lined up at the White House.
10 things you didn't know about Patton--this one made me literally drop my jaw. WHAT? Patton's son-in-law, John K Waters, was NOT killed in the raid on Hammelburg; he died in 1989, a full 45 years after that raid. He also went on to become a 4-star general, or was this a ghost...? Oh, new series: 10 things you didn't know about how ghosts played a role in US history.
I could go on about how all the stuff in this series is either obvious (Hitler was Austrian? Oh my gosh!Read more ›
Of the Ben Franklin show, at least every 3 minutes I found myself saying, "That's not accurate." (I'm a bit of a Ben buff.) It's not that I am in denial about certain things he said but they were either distortions for sensationalism's sake or they were outright lies.
Truth is so much more fascinating than fiction. Why bother making stuff up or twisting it when facts, if told well, will beat out fiction any day?
