British vs US media

Posted: July 19, 2011 in Life in the UK

There was a great article in the Washington Post a few days ago about the differences in the media in the US vs Britain. I found it particularly enlightening as I have struggled to comprehend what it is we see at the news stands here. At first glance, it all seems like a bunch of rubbish to us. Tabloids that aren’t worth a moment of our lives. While after reading this article I now have greater appreciation for the art of British journalism, I find it hard to get over my cultural bias of seeing it as half-truthed nonsense. Nonetheless, for those of you out there following the Murdoch phone hacking shenanigans, this may provide some important context that is missing from a lot of the American reporting.
