Watching CNN or reading some US newspapers often gives me the shivers because of the narrow interests reflected. I have since a little boy during the Cold War been vary of any newspaper pertaining to be neutral. At least in Reykjavik during that time no newspaper was neutral. The placement in the paper, if it is on the front cover or in a small column inside. I got this map on stumble. It is uncomfortable in two ways: a) an amazing arrogance against a nation with high level of achievement in the arts and research. b) if there is some truth in it we have to worry greatly. Now the question becomes: what presidential candidate (or current president) comes closest to using this kind of a map?
