Attack Ads Fuel American Racism
A simple report by Aljazeera about racism in the American heartland (like we didn't know it already exists) has caused a storm of outrage, not at the views expressed, but that a TV reporter would include them in his story.
Any outside observer would include these remarks, so what's the fuss? Apparently the US media ignores these comments, and expresses outrage if someone else doesn't ignore them. Sounds a bit like our old Apartheid SABC.
