How much attention do elections in Japan, India, Argentina, or any other country, get from the U.S. media?

I was watching a stream from CNN about Michael Jackson and how folks around the world are saddened by it, but then towards the end of the broadcast they show some twitter comments from a couple 'people' saying thing like "Ahmadinejad, Beat it, Beat it" and such.

Iran deserves all the demonizing they are getting. The government is asking for this label by how they are treating their people.
