It seems that Fox News isn't terribly excited about the Netherlands. It should come as no surprise that a news channel with a conservative target audience has attacked one of the most liberal countries multiple times.
They have accused of the Netherlands having no moral standards, being immoral and suggested its tolerance will lead it to Anarchy and its downfal, even though the Netherlands is, according to the 2008 index, the 4th most democratic country in the world.
In case you're wondering, the United States is number 18th.
Perhaps one of the most well known videos is the one where Fox News attempted to explore the religious side of the Netherlands. They claimed it's a country where people shunned and ridicule religion in public even though you can see religion in public everywhere and studies suggest 55% of population is religious. They also claimed weddings between more than 2 people is legal. This isn't really true but Fox News obviously didn't check the facts first.
so it came to my surprise that I found another FOX video. This time they are trying to attack the Netherlands drug policy although this time they concentrate on Amsterdam, which is strange as the laws in Amsterdam are pretty much the same everywhere else. Perhaps the target audience never heard of the Netherlands and they thought Amsterdam was more recognizable.
Anyway, a person on youtube noticed the video and made his own "counter" video, comparing the facts between the US and the Netherlands.
Notice how good old O'reily says he doesn't care about the Netherlands after being confronted with the facts.
