As I drove in, I listened to the BBC’s description of the President’s remarks this morning. President Obama was described by the BBC reporter — to the British audience as well as those of us with access to their radio broadcasts — as “angry and blaming.” Whether that is accurate or not is not the point of this post. The point of the post is to show how the President is described overseas and how many Brits may perceive him on this particular issue.
PS – I listen to other nations (English speaking) news broadcasts to see how USA is perceived. I also read online newspapers from around the world. I do it simply to give me an idea of the USA standing in the world. It is not a perfect means of learning – just one small parameter in a universe of many.
