I think here in the UK we have better and more sane news, proper documentaries and reporting, getting to the facts, keeping it real refraining from sales pitch soundbite ''here's your opinion, we decide that for you, suck it up'' style 'fast food' news.
And I say that as no disrespect to the US but I have found most of the reporting and news styles there a form of sugar coated patriotism lacking substance and insight. Like the government ad guys wrote the news, coated it in 'shiny' and wrapped it in a plastic coated stars and stripes flag and stuck a 'god bless America, wooo woo woo woo woo' cocktail stick in it.
On that premise, the reporting style of the US has a lot to answer for regarding US centric attitudes that are all too apparent on ATS. Thankfully there are those of US persuasion that can see past the 'ad news' and perhaps see the reality and the value of other non US centric opinions.
As for the ''it's all a Zionist plan'' brigade, this seems a symptom of the shiny plastic coated ad guy news, just wrapping it up in a different flavour of 'shiny'.
God forbid (actually God permit) that America ever takes itself out of it's plastic bubble, removes it's blinkers and realises that their own and other governments policies and behaviour around the globe are more misguided, complex and historical than a plastic soundbite.
