Negative Presentation Of The Kennedy Family
25 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All through this program very negative comments are made about infidelity by the Kennedy men. Very little is noted about the wonderful things these great men, John & Robert Kennedy did for this country.

This is really a revisionist view of history. Only thing is that people such as myself remember what happened and how our nation was affected.

All throughout this program there is negativity. I do not mean the negative events such as the assassinations but negative comments about the Kennedy family's character.

It is sad that younger people are given this negative portrait of the Kennedy's. They are not shown the greatness and the giving these people gave. It is truly a tragedy.
