TV BROADCASTS OUTFOXED!
The Australian National TV Carrier ABC are broadcasting OUTFOXED
on this Tuesday February 1st slap bang in the primetime slot.
There can be nothing more stange or more appropriate. If you
don't know about OUTFOXED, you'll need to read my report on
too good to be true. The owner of the notorious TV station Fox
News, Rupert Murdoch, is Australian. He is the world's most
powerful man in media, and despite his claims, its painfully
obvious that his cable channel Fox News is broadcasting extreme
right-wing views as they pretend to be a real news channel.
OutFoxed have a real problem selling their movie - which is
a gang of EX-Fox News reporters and producers giving us the
low-down on what really went on at Fox - which is pretty bad
stuff. The main problem, according to a journalist friend of
mine is that they never interviewed anyone CURRENTLY working
at Fox News - which is seen as an inbalanced view. However it
got reasonable distribution through the net and has been carried
by independent cinemas in the USA, not to mention indie cinemas
here in Australia. It pleases me greatly that the Australian
Broadcasting Corporation (ABC TV) are airing this nationwide
MIDDLE AUSTRALIANS VOTED IN OUR
RIGHT WING PRIME MINISTER JOHN HOWARD BECAUSE OF RIGHT-WING
RANTS FROM NATIONAL RADIO BROADCASTERS JOHN LAWS AND ALAN JONES
Cable TV does well per capita in this country.
It is most popular amongst "middle Australians" a
category best describing your average Australian - regular folks
who live in the country and the massive suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne
and Brisbane. They are completely misled by the likes of Alan
Jones- who, before Christmas, constantly repeated PM John Howards
desire that all Australians "should proudly fly
the Australian flag outside their homes". How much further
could John Howard be crawling up Bush's rear end, and how pathetic
that the AM broadcasters of this country endorse something so
"American". The viewers are also "taken in"
by Fox News, which is aired on cable TV here.
Look, I am an Australian citizen. I love the flag. But we are
NOT the 51st state of the USA Goddammit!!! We are just as patriotic
as the Americans, but we do it in our way - with "snags
on the Barbie" and a "slab of Fosters". Putting
flagpoles in our gardens is not something we feel we need to
And on that note, I have no problem with the USA. Just the man
who is running (or is that ruining) that great country.
Anyway, back to the point off all this - the ABC is broadcasting
outfoxed and many people in Middle Australia, many of who have
FOX NEWS - might realise that this station has nothing to do
with NEWS. It is a 24/7 magazine show with a strong right wing
