OUTFOXED: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism

Last night we watched OUTFOXED: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism:
"Outfoxed examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a 'race to the bottom' in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know."

From what I have seen before, the only thing that seems to be comparable to this kind of propaganda is probably Karl-Eduard von Schnitzler's
"Schwarzer Kanal"
, the weekly pitch from the chief propagandist of the former East Germany about why the West was so bad and - in his view - bound to run itself out of business.
