Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
What, you mean: Americans are insular, and want their media to tell them about the rest of the world only insofar as it affects themselves?*I could have told you that, simply based on frequent trips down there over the past 30 years, comparing what was on TV news to the typical content of the CBC.* Present company excepted, of course.
Just a minor quibble: Living here in Taiwan, I recognize most of the Asian edition Time magazine covers, but for some reason, for the October 3, 2011 issue, we got the US cover too. Maybe their local marketing is a bit more complex than just US vs. the world.But your larger point still holds, of course. You can see this with CNN too - whenever CNN International shows a US-produced show, the drop in IQ and increase in dB are palpable.
