Is the rest of the world ready for Glenn Beck and Fox News?

The row over Rupert Murdoch’s bid to buy all of BSkyB in the UK rumbles on and, underlying it all, is the fear that he might impose Fox News or its equivalent on the UK.

Which he still might (if he’s successful) despite his promise to the coalition government to park Sky News in a separately-owned company.

So what are we (or some people anyway) frightened of?

Well the likes of Fox pundit Glenn Beck probably. And here he is shoehorning Hillary Clinton in with General Santa Anna, the Mexican general who killed Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie at the Alamo (which was part of Mexico at the time).

A tour de force I’m sure you’ll agree.

But it does make you worry about America a bit.
