What does Fox News have to do with it? "I don't agree, therefore, it must be Fox News propaganda." Let's debate on substance, not labels.

What I've seen of recent trends in some public schools, there is some cause for concern regarding altering history to conform to what our current notion of fairness is. I had heard stories from people I knew, who have children in public schools, about prominent figures in U.S. history being largely ignored because they were being judged, and therefore shunned, by today's standards. I came across this article last year that I think illustrates this concern effectively.

While the intentions of excluding, or downplaying some history, or historical figures, because we, in today's society, may disagree with some of their actions is certainly debatable, I think the article that is the topic of this whole discussion today shows how dangerous it can be if we spend too much time thinking about what we want to be, and not enough time looking at what we once were.
