BBC Anti -US Bias
Looking at the Yahoo cross-section of ( US ) political cartoons a week ago, just about every one of them crucified Bush and made him look like an imbecile. There was no criticism of the LA governor and the NO mayor at all, no nuance, no diversity of opinion.
But the bias you see on the BBC and the other taxpayer-supported media in Europe are a real problem. So much of the media is run by the government. In France, you'll never see a pro-US voice in their mainstream media. The media panders to every anti-US prejudice of the population. The Europeans think that they are well-informed, but do they ever hear an alternative view?
The natural tendency is to see long-established media official or nearly official media ( BBC, Deutsche Welle, Le Monde ) as " objective ". But they're anything but. There's one view, with only shades of a basically anti-US view that is presented.
Europe needs a Fox News Channel. And much more critical feedback from a robust internet. I don't care if they agree with me or with any action of the US govt, but there needs to be at least diversity of perspective. Shouldn't there?
