    And dont forget.. Murdoch is a foreigner as well and only got American citizenship because non-American's can not own US news organisations.

    KHC is owner of about 7pc of News Corporation's Class B Common Stock.

    Is there anything that you will not equate with Fox News?
    PeteEU, and many thousands of other Europeans, are the victims of anti American propaganda. They truly believe that the United States is the greatest threat to the world, not Islamism or, before them, Communism. This is the consequence of propaganda and there is no reason why it will not continue. It works.

    It will increase.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    A foreigner as well? Hahaha. Like being an Australian guy is the same as being a totalitarian dictator ruling a country without human rights.

    Random Australian guy = backwards, hairy-backed, fundie "Emir" dictator!

    Really?!

    Where'd you get this comparison, from a fringe nationalist website? It's gotta be the most stupid comparison I've seen today, probably this week.

    It will, J-Mac, but the constant criticism of America by Americans in America (until Obama took it international) does not do the cause of freedom any good either. There is so much good in the US but that doesn't seem to getting to the outside world as much as anything negative.

    Maybe there has to be a more aggressive approach in the propaganda wars from the democracies, though the threat of Islamic riots and assassinations to that sort of response will remain. Just as with the Communists, they want all the propaganda to flow in one direction.

    I think under progressive rule over the last 4 years has done much to damage our credibility in that respect. We need to fix ourselves before we can preach the moral rightness of freedom to others.

    That's like saying: it's not Google, it's Google Ireland--an entirely different organization.

    Yes, but they love that sort of thing....."We aren't liberals, we are progressives"....."Marxism, and Socialism are totally different"...... It is a game ending up in word salad that diminishes the meaning of anything.
