Mondays with Goebbels, Fox Makes It Easy

Fox Television series "24", or as The Crossfader likes to refer to it, that show where the Feds get to know what's going on, has begun anew with a plotline only a latterday Goebbels could love. Goebbels you will remember was the chief propagandist of the Third Reich. Take away the standard asinine antisemitism (Jews r' bad!), insert alternative asinine antisemitism (Arabs r' terrorists!) and you get the warm and fuzzy, paranoid world of the American psyche.

Of course in TVland you catch all the breaks. In the real world, you get stuck "nation building." And that makes boring television.
