ABSTRACT
The article comments on the reported behavior of Western correspondents who had covered the Cambodian war in the 1970s. Journalists used to sing songs in mockery of the hard-liners in the American Embassy who were issuing reports of Khmer Rouge cruelties. As the world now knows, shortly after the Khmer Rouge takeover there was a bloodbath, a dreadful blood-bath. Of the hundreds of reporters who had been in Cambodia during the hostilities only a handful went to the refugee camps on the Thai border, where serious information about the new Cambodian society could be obtained.
