Yes except that basic television wasn't even a mainstay in the world at that time. I am sure there were plenty Christians who wondered "well how will the whole world see the 2 witnesses?"Easier to say now that the end didn't come.
If I had been alive back then, and somebody told me Adolf Hitler was either the present or future Antichrist, I would've believed it, absolutely.
There is no question of that now considering our technological capabilities.
