America, Fuck Yeah!

It's amazing watching Fox News's coverage of the 'London Bombings: A year on'. Americans interviewing other Americans about the terrible tragedy in London... I mean, they're doing a live shoot from England - the least they could do is rustle up a real live local. And the way that they are trying to insert the word terrorist into every little bit of dialogue, it's making me feel ill. The relationship between hard-line Islam and rightwing America can only be described as symbiotic. It is amazing to see two cultures so hatefully opposed to each other and yet so inextricably reliant upon one another.

I've never heard it put that way. Great point. Is there anyway we can download the footage? I unfortunately missed what surely was a incredible exercise in hyperbolic combustion.

I'm not entirely sure Miss Apple - you could probably download the footage from the Faux News website. They spent the whole day there (in London) drumming up fear and hatred.
