Boston Legal episode on media bias gets censored

ABC’s TV drama “Boston Legal” debuts in Sweden next Monday on TV3. Apparently the show’s script is too controversial for the big media moguls on the other side of the pond. In a recent episode, the show debates the issue of media bias but it doesn’t name any names, especially not Fox News Channel because ABC asked the executive producer and writer David E. Kelley to remove references to Fox. In the original script a school principal uses FOXBlocker to block Fox on televisions in his school. Instead, there is criticism of TV news in general and one unidentified network in particular. The network also refused to run an ad for the film Outfoxed.
