  •  I was speaking in terms of US content, with (3+ / 0-)

    respect to impeachment.

    The cover you mention was Newsweek, and was about US foreign policy wrt Iraq v. what was the selling cover in the World.  That caused me to dismiss Fareed Zacharia as a truth teller.

    Rude is OK, if international press is something I need to pay attention to for information on our domestic isssues.  I didn't know, and was asking, if our domestic issues were reported more openly and in investigative detail in the international press, specifically if Murdoch-owned media did so.

    I/we all know here the details of the Bush political mysogeny.  Again, I was just wondering out loud if more investigation has been done and reported by the international press on this issue.

    Perhaps another way to look at it is that I don't have the time or inclination to cast into the international media to get a sense of our own domestic tribulations.  To be honest, it may be informative, but it really doesn't matter much.  But it could, hence my question.

    Be well.

    It's full of stars...

    •  I thought it was Newsweek (5+ / 0-)

      but deleted the mention, because I wasn't sure. Glad you remembered it.

      About Rupert-owned media overseas: an excellent question. I'm sure some here know the answer, but I don't.

      In general: There's no question that even UK media cover US affairs infinitely more objectively than American corporate media.

      I know it's ridiculous to have to chase down domestic stories on international media. However, let me raise the comparison between the way people behind Iron Curtain greeted Radio Free Europe; and how today's American voters can't be bothered to follow free, easily accessed international coverage.

      Doesn't speak well about the current generation running the country, generally.
