I've met Europeans that have seen the Outfoxed video, but never really thought about whether FOX gets broadcast over there. I can't imagine that anyone outside the country would watch it. Many people here call it FAUX News :D
I certainly wouldn´t watch it on a daily basis. I could imagine watching O´Reilly like once a month or so. With a couple of friends and some mind-expanding substances to fully appreciate the lunacy! :D
i LOVE fox news. where else can you see people actually scream at each other from 2 locations about stock tips? brilliant viewing.
the problem i have with fox isnt that its right wing - the other channels, whilst not exactly left of centre are certainly democrats. its overwhelmingly biased - obama obama obama. the outfoxed movie is great as it highlights the lack of distinction between journalism and business. i worked for a magazine company for a while and the mantra in the industry is that editorial and management are like church and state - DO NOT MIX. unfortunately even at local levels an agenda is pushed.
that said, take the doco with a grain of salt - FOX news is about as far from impartial as you can get, but that by no means means the other channels are in the clear.

I think the reason that media seems biased towards Obama is because the people are for Obama. Bush has an approval rating in the 20s (%). I think that people realize the US is on a rapid decline and they don't want "Bush III."
There are two "applicants" for the President's job, and one of them looks vastly better. :)
I'm reading this book and it makes some excellent points on why McCain shouldn't be President:
McCain said something like he doesn't care if the Iraq War lasts another hundred years.
Here is Obama speaking to 85,000 people and McCain speaking to what looked like just a couple hundred:
If you watch McCain's whole speech, you never see more than a few rows of people, and the group that is shouting support sounds canned -- probably a group of his own campaign staff pretending to be grassroots support. I saw that kind of thing going on in the last election, with Republicans paying people to stage fake Bush rallies, etc.
