How the rest of the world sees us
A few days ago, I was pleased/amazed/surprised to see a reporter from RT.com (Russia Today television) standing in Charleston. Today, I'm feeling the same way after finding an article about us on PressTV.ir, which is run out of Tehran (presstv.ir/detail/345512.html). It turns out it's a reprint of an article from The Guardian (theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jan/13/west-virginia-chemical-spill-versus-bridgegate).
As you might or might not know, I'm sometimes critical of mainstream media, and in this article Ana Marie Cox shows why. It is worth noting that what she is saying about the West Virginia water/Bridgegate situation could be said about so many other things that get ignored/covered by the mainstream media.
I just thought you might enjoy seeing how the rest of the world sees us. (Something else about which our mainstream media fails to inform us.)
