Response to fasttense (Reply #9)

15. Not half as much

There's the rub

Much more to be made by inventing boogeymen, hiring sexy bimbos to deliver the BS, dramatic graphics animations, and hype the fear factor and imploring the viewers to continue to watch because they won't hear about all these "threats" on the other networks. This is true of course because there are no actual threats (of a communist, Muslim, gay, feminist..etc., takeover of the country). Murdoch has discovered a weakness in the American psyche, which is not as relevant in his home country of Australia, for being able to scare easily. Maybe its conditioning from movies, glorification of the military and its influence, ....who knows. But he's milking it for all he can.
