VAX update

read here if you don't know what i'm talking about.

i just got an email that says there's going to be some kind of public forum about the whole deal in westminster. i wish i could be there but i can't. if you live in the LA area and give a rat's ass, please go and let me know what's going on. i can't find the press release on VAX's website so here is the text of the email:

In response to the concerns pertaining to VAX's coverage of the Saigon USA documentary, VAX will host an "Open Discussion/Community Forum" this Thursday, November 4th. The forum will take place from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the City of Westminster Community Services and Recreation Center. The focus of the open discussion will be to address the following issues:

1) VAX's Saigon USA clip

2) The roles that young and old play in educating and discussing Vietnamese history.

3) The responsibilities and ethics of reporting news in the Vietnamese community.

This forum is not meant to state who is right or wrong, but rather to bring to surface the differences between young, old, conservative, and liberal. We invite you to come out and help us to bridge the gaps that exist in our community. It is our hope that everyone will come away from this with a better understanding of each other.

Capacity of the forum will be limited, so we cannot promise that everyone will be able to participate. Please also understand that there will be extensive media coverage of the event as well. For more information, please visit our website at www.vaxtvshow.com

VAX is also looking for a bi-lingual moderator for the forum who is fluent in both English and Vietnamese. If interested, please email us at info@vaxtvshow.com or call us directly at 714.241.8990
