The Wall Street Journal balanced by The Economist. Fox news while I shave.

I didn't see the Newsweek cover you are referring to Blue. But I would say, YES, they are definitely dumbing down the news for N. Americans (Canada and US).
That's why I say the coverage on European CNN is so much better. They cover the World, and everything happening at the UN meetings.
I bet you guys did not see the African fellow who was ranting and raging, vehement hostility & vitriol against President Bush for almost 30 minutes over a week ago. They had to have security intervene.

Speaking of differences between news overseas and news here, did you see the story about NewsWeek's last issue? Apparently, on the several International versions of the magazine they had a picture of a Muslim fighter with a weapon, but on the US version they did a coverstory on a celebrity photographer. Are they dumbing down the news for us?

CNN, Fox & BBC

There is a definite difference in the CNN news received in European countries than the CNN news received in North America. It is much more diverse and comprehensive overseas. I prefer it. But when I come home, unfortunately it is not an option. So I will read the Guardian UK or Economist online.

I am, admittedly, a Fox News junkie (anybody know of a support group or pill?), but I really enjoy a magazine I've picked up a few times called something like the "World News Report" that merely reproduces articles from around the world and identifies their source by what type of perspective they have (i.e.-"libertarian paper", "conservative press", "liberal periodical", etc...). I think everyone has an agenda in the newstelling business [including, I'm sure, editing and choosing which articles to put even in this magazine], but, I haven't found a better source for a collection of different worldwide views on the same subject.

If you want to really know whats happening around the world, without any bias,there is only one source and the sane and sensible around the world have all agreed. The BBC World service is head and shoulders above all comers, no contest. No sensationalism, no political bias , just facts as they are,

I read NYT on the weekends, I watch a bit of Anderson Cooper on CNN every night and I use BBC's website for international news.

CNN, BBC World & French news most of the time - sometimes Belgian, Dutch or German and on the odd occasion Greek. And the internet! And newspapers too.
