Leave it to somebody else to offer fresh insights where your own vision gets pretty dim. I am routinely blown away by the reporting going on in other news outlets around the world. And how, maybe because there's not much vested interest, media outlets around the world are able to pull no punches in their coverage of a story, especially one that has so much to do with America and the American state of politics.

From the Rear Vision program on ABC Radio National in Australia comes this half-hour look at the Tea Party Movement in the U.S.; how it began, what are its roots and what are its objectives.

In a half hour they manage to cram in a lot of information about the state of Conservatism in the U.S. and present it in a way that offers information, rather than an opinion.

As it was broadcast on October 26, 2011, full and complete with no cuts.
