Tokyo Rose in New York

Gigot, Paul
December 1977
National Review;12/23/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 50, p1488
The article presents the author's opinions about the views of Wilfred Burchett, a journalist, regarding imperialism. Recently, Burchett made a statement about the imperialist policies of the U.S. According to Burchett, during the Vietnam War, politicians tried to prove that the domino theory was a faulty theory, secretly hoping that it would succeed. Burchett had sued a magazine for publishing incorrect information about him that he was an agent of the Soviet Union's intelligence agency. As a foreign correspondent for the periodical "Guardian," Burchett became the Tokyo Rose of the Vietnam War and now reports from Angola and Mozambique.
