    Yep. The only media I even listen to on US airwaves is TAL. I do listen to NPR for general news but overall most US journalism is crap now.

    As a US citizen I am very disappointed in what we've become.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I watched US Fox news the other day for the first time. I was wetting myself. What a joke. Our TV news is very quickly marching in the same direction.

    THe owner of Fox News is an Australian, Rupert Murdoch. If it were up to me, he'd be in Gitmo as a foreign subversive.

    Gitmo is reference to a naval base we have in Cuba - ironically a country Americans are not even legally allowed to travel to nor one we have any positive diplomatic ties with.

    Oh oh, now I did it! His people will start hacking my telephone messages while he will claim that he does not know about it therefore it never happened.

    I thought that the said gentleman had taken out U.S. citizenship a number of years ago. With the current U.K. enquiry into his press empire's standards in the U.K. I feel that any chance of transferring his citizenship to the U.K. is distinctly remote

    It's reverse censorship. A handful of interests can control the discussion by turning the volume higher than anyone else can speak over. They get ahold of the web, the primetime news, and have
    dedicated propaganda networks too. But our primetime news in general is so dumbed-down to the
    lowest common denominator or redneck IQ anyway that I'm surprised that possums and porcupines
    haven't been granted voting rights, because they're probably more literate than half the people in
    this country! News is more entertainment, and I guess it sounds sexy to broadcast how nowbody
    uses film anymore, because a cell phone does it all.

    Correct. Rupert took US citizenship many years ago purely for business reasons as I recall.

    I see! Guantanamo was obviously too much of a mouthful for most people over there
