Keep in mind, too, much of Europe and places like Canada and Australia are much more liberal and much less religion-fixated than the USA. (Sort of like we were all from New York City or something). Plus, they don’t have the racial divide that plagues US inner cities and figuress prominently in the news from there. Also, nobody has the consitutional freedoms guaranteed to Americans to the braod extent the USA has, so they don’t understand the extremes of law this results in.
The rest of the civilized world has health care (did you notice it had a prominent place in the celebration of Britain in the Olympic opening ceremony?). Nobody understands the vitriol that seems to fly over the subject. Most other countries have various restrictions on free speech that would be forbidden in America. Most other countries, however they arrived at it, have strong gun control. most other countries have a much more relaxed attitude to drugs, and non-violent property crime.
It did not help that America in its war on terror ran roughshod over the rights of others and invaded a country based on questionable intelligence (of the weapons data, mainly) and for not real connection to 9-11.
So it’s not that the media is biased in reporting these things. It’s that the population of the rest of civilized world is not misled or intimidated by jingoistic “freedom fries” talk, since they are not Americans. They don’t understand why anyone would want some of the contrary situations the USA finds itself in. The comments on youturd, like any comments on the internet, are the worst assholes of those countries (no country has a monopoly) who say things with impunity knowing they are anonymous. Google “troll”.
