Due to the painful past of the exodus of Vietnamese refugees after the Vietnam War, the two anti-communist organizations do not approve of any business involvement directly with the government of Vietnam. CVAAC and NVCSC have accused that VietFace TV to be broadcasting communist propaganda in the United States.
