Enough with the US election19 Oct 2004
Bjørn Stærk: Enough with the US election "You get a sense of how intertwined European and American culture has
become, and how much of a one-way relationship it is, when you look at
the amount of press coverage the US election receives here. It may seem
obvious to my American readers that their election should be covered in
full detail all across the world, but it's not. You're not that important. But we care anyway... On October 18, Norway's online newspapers published 52 articles mentioning John Kerry. On the same day, they published 18 articles mentioning our own prime minister Kjell Magne Bondevik." It's just as bad in Germany.
