When history is written, I hope they're shamed for supporting the Communist demagogue and all his lies.
Years ago I learned a lesso about the media. When they come to you for information, say No comment and walk away.

The best way to handle the Media is to walk away.
History is a funny thing written by the winners in the conflict. Things are looking pretty grim.
