Which European democracy can look down on us? I think people are not afraid of free expression, but are fed up with irresponsible journalism. The constant battle for ratings and newspaper sales has resulted in the sensationalism of even the smallist issues (as long as they are sales worthy). The is a hell of alot of Israel bashing in our media, which gives our journalists legitamacy and prestige with our critics abroad, but is not always justified. And often appears as if they are just looking for a pat on the back from their foreign associates. What European citizens would put up with having their country constantly "slagged off" by their own press all the time? Especially in time of war. What European nation would live up to our standards in time of war and conflict. Not many I venture.
