#Accuracy in Media : Roger Aronoff

On March 30, 2013, at the national conference of the Popular Culture Association and the American Culture Association, held at the Washington, D.C. Marriott-Wardman Park Hotel, I was moderator for a panel that examined Oliver Stone, as an artist and historian. Stone and Peter Kuznick, his co-author of The Untold History of the United States and his co-producer of the Showtime TV series of the same name, were honored at the conference and spoke and took questions the evening before this panel discussion took place.


The panel was organized by Dr. Peter Rollins, a former AIM Fellow who produced the AIM documentary, “Television’s Vietnam,” part one of which aired on PBS in the 1980s. Rollins, an author, former professor and Marine, with a Ph.D from Harvard, has written and taught about films in popular culture, particularly as they relate to war and politics. He was also the president of the Popular Culture Association in the 1980s.


The other panelists were Ronald Radosh and Richard Raack. Radosh is a Prof. Emeritus of the City University of New York, an Adjunct Fellow at the Hudson Institute, and a columnist for PJ Media. He is the author or co-author of over fifteen books, including The Rosenberg File, Red Star Over Hollywood and A Safe Haven: Harry S. Truman and the Founding of Israel. He writes regularly for The Weekly Standard, National Review, and major newspapers including The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times and many others. He has been instrumental in waging a challenge to the distorted history of Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick.


Following the Stone/Kuznick session on March 29th, and our panel on the 30th, Radosh summed up what had taken place in a column for PJ Media:
