      A great read. A friend of mine in the U.S. gave his amicable 72 year old uncle a subscription to Fox News a few years back. He tells me since then his uncle has become a committed evangelical, watches Fox News as often as he can; nowadays hates and distrust every one, even members of his family who do not accept the Fox News as the absolute truth.

    Re the AFL Footy Show – we and most of our friends here in Adelaide much prefer to watch the Marngrook footy show – it is far more entertaining and has much more interesting and knowledgeable guest commentators than the other free-to-air shows. We would be interested to know how many viewers the show has?

    One small consolation fro the baleful effect Ailes had on news presentation is that he didn’t live long enough to wallow in his $40M golden parachute.
    Pity about those longevity genes the mudorc seems to have inherited from his sainted mother.
