I want to explain to Michael Wilmington and the Los Angeles Times that if I wanted to read vehement and vicious attacks upon and disparagement of Reader's Digest in his review of the movie "The Hanoi Hilton" (" 'Hanoi': Cardboard Heroes, Villains," March 27), I would leaf through Village Voice or Nation.
But as a reader of The Times, I do expect objective, accurate and non-superficial writing. I respect Wilmington's views, but indeed, do not care to read his whitewashing of perfidious Jane Fonda, nor his affront and glib vilification of Reader's Digest. I liked the film, it left an indelible impression, but that is my opinion. I am not pressing anyone to accept it.
