I mentioned being interviewed for this item a while back; it has not appeared. I gave several examples of how U.S. courses might equally be 'propaganda' but IHE didn't use them for some reason. One example I found particularly relevant was the economics student revolt last year where they demanded that economics professors embrace and teach more than standard laissez-faire free market economic theory. Even more to the point, there should be no need to recite 'the subject according to Rupert Murdoch' anytime you discuss something. Education isn't a liturgy. Diverse perspectives should be expected.
