Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... cutting point of this quote diary is that it is imprecise to say or convey the suggestion of "western press" when the worst examples are in the English language press.

But in the English-language media bubble, I would caution against taking the content of detailed coverage as representative of coverage in terms of framing public policy debate. The existence of reasonably careful, well-informed coverage is one thing ... the total audience receiving careful, well-informed coverage versus the total audience receiving the impression common to the DC Village and the Murdoch machine is also a matter to take into account.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
