    Default World looks at U.S. election

    World looks at U.S. election with uncommon intensity

    BERLIN, Germany (AP) -- People outside the United States could only watch, wait and vent as Americans lined up to vote Tuesday in an election that provoked an extraordinary degree of emotional involvement beyond U.S. borders.

    We're all watching this election with much anxiety.

    In Sao Paulo, Brazil, Wagner Markues, 54, also prefers Kerry and wonders why the race is so close.

    "We don't understand America now," he said. "Are they getting different news than us .....
    At the heart of the matter is a belief that in an era of globalization, when American decisions affect hundreds of millions around the globe, the election is not just a U.S. issue.

    "Why shouldn't the Italians vote for the elections, too?" said screenwriter Michele Cogo. "The planet's destiny is decided in large part by America."
    From Germany:
    "If a newly elected president calls for a new contribution that we've refused up to now, it won't be so easy to reject as it fortunately has been with the enemy image of Bush," former defense minister Rudolf Scharping said.

    Yes, we do.

    Every foreign country I have travelled to this year has had completely different coverage of events in Iraq than we do here.

    It's like night and day and it makes you wonder.

    Personally, I think news are slanted everyplace and there is no free press anyplace.

    The American press, with few notable examples such as The New Yorker, until the lies about weapons of mass destruction became too much even for them, have aided and abetted in the increase of government power and been uncritical of the excesses of either the Congress or the Department of Homeland Security. Individual reporters who dared to question the President (I have in mind the treatment recently meted out to the doyenne of the White House press corps, Helen Thomas) have been cut out of the loop. Critical authors such as Susan Sontag have been all but banned from the airwaves.
    taken from http://www.pushhamburger.com/menace.htm . I chose this quote - although there are many to choose from, because it eloquently describes the press in the u.s.a.
