Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

maybe we have been roved into a new awareness of modern propaganda, i'd like to think that's why the media is shifting to a new level and direction of criticism.
With even Faux Noise and Rove himself criticizing the McCain Campaign for their campaign of lies and distractions, with Rupert himself publicly telling Bill'O to get used to Olberman's criticisms, perhaps we are at an inflection point in public perception.  

Could it be that even Murdoch suspects that pirate capitalism has gone too far and that the carnage and the stench from dead and dying "financial sector" enterprises is poisoning the atmosphere of the entire Anglo world in which his own enterprises are based?  Can even he see the need to reposition the tone of his enterprise to better fit new realities?

We can hope so.  Why else would his presenters be actively undermining memes of the McPalin campaign?  Perhaps he just doesn't want his news organization to be the last dog barking at a phantom.  Perhaps he it trying to tell that campaign that it is time for something new, that their inanity is becoming embarrassing even to him.  Time will tell. But it has to be unsettling to that campaign.
