Freedom of the press and 'democracy', RIP. best f. ---------- >From: "Bert Gedin" <email@example.com> >To: firstname.lastname@example.org >Subject: [casi] Foxy Propaganda? >Date: Mon, Jul 15, 2002, 11:38 am > > > Dear All on List, > > Could you please help with this? Last night (Sunday, 14 July), I was, > half-heartedly, watching 'Fox News', I think at about 9.30 p.m. Then my > attention became mobilised: the (lady) newscaster decried anti-American > sentiments, expressed in the British media.
