Well, I have heard of it: the average American shows little or no interest on reports concerning the world outside of the US. And you can just tell that I, somehow, show a little consideration.

At the same time, I find it even more interesting to figure out what kind of reports and news flashes are supposed to catch Mr and Mrs Miller's, Bush's and Smith's & Wesson's curiosity.
So, over the lasts two or three months, I compared the most prominent(!) news stories concerning Germany according to CNN and Fox with those of some German media.

It is very likely that there was written more about us Sausage-Eating Yodel Peaceniks, but this is what I can easily recall:

Dog was taught to give Hitler salute

That was when German media reported that 35 prople from (Ex-)Yugoslavia sued Germany: During the Kosovo war one or two American F-16 (under NATO command!) attacked a bridge killing several civilians.

And today German media reports that Schröder suffers political fallout from a German-Chinese plutonium plant deal and that Schroeders junior partner, the Greens, even plan to ask President Bush, the IATA and UNO for help. I'm not sure whether or not you know more about this, because CNN reports that

Cannibal 'sought more volunteers'

Unfortunately this is exactly today's headline at ... BBC, too.
