AUSTRALIAN 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 it here.

Its 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 here.

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 do.

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 agenda.
