The most popular AlterNet videos of the year are an eclectic bunch. They feature comedians taking on Fox News while on Fox News, as well as comparing George W. Bush's presidency to "Battlefield Earth." There is the incredible documentary footage of police brutality in St. Paul, Minn., as well as other pieces that focused on the lighter side of Election '08. There's footage of Karle Rove almost getting arrested, and an anchorman with the courage to call Bush what he really is. Whether serious or satirical, these are the 10 videos that sparked the most interest on AlterNet this year.
