Gee, someone in the media is actually a Communist. Shocking!
Well when he gets where he's going, I hope there are a few angry Nam vets waiting to toss him into the pit.

He remained a communist therefore a moron..
Since he's a dead commie, is he now a good commie?
It really would have been better. Perhaps, as the hammer went back, he would have had a chance at contrition for his part in bringing about the murder of several million of his countrymen.
He might have been afforded better accommodations than the ones he's probably enjoying now.
Enjoy hell m****r f****r!

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Media has spies in its midst? Whodda thunked!
May he be with Walter Duranty in Hell.
shame he was never punished for his crimes
I bet this guy was an objective, truthful reporter.
When reporting to his real bosses in North Vietnam.
Otherwise, he was probably the same as the vast bulk of "journalists".
Yeah he was, he had to live in Vietnam.
