    Which news were you watching? Sky News?
    I guess the nightly national news broadcasts in the US are okay (Brian Willams et al), but the so-called news networks are frankly abhorrent. Anchorman 2, amazingly, parodied what has happened in these networks rather adeptly. Local news, while less obviously biased, focus on the weather (4 or 5 times in the broadcast), sports, and banal "human interest" pieces.

    But back to my most important point - real bacon. Oh, how I miss real bacon by which I mean Irish back bacon, preferably maple smoked, rindless, thick cut. [​IMG]

    Oh, and I forgot chocolate. This Hershey's shit is, well, shit.

    I stopped watching Sky rather early on in disgust. Then again, same can be said for MSNBC and Fox. I have come to the conclusion that no news broadcasts are unbiased. They simply cater to the expectations of their audience. Al Jazeera is a great example. Admittedly not a British news source (of course). When my friends from America first came into contact with it they lauded it as a truly unbiased news source because they criticized things that U.S. news sources wouldn't touch. After watching it for a while they come to realize that it isn't unbiased, it is simply news from another perspective. This is my impression of British news. It's simply news form a different perspective. When they report on the U.S., however, I do notice that they make cultural errors constantly. Anyway, that's all I have to say about that.

    Living with a Brit, he balances his diet of TV news between BBC America (which is actually reasonably intelligent), one local TV news show (for the weather, among other things), and NBC/Brian Williams (at least he dresses well).

    As for bacon, what Americans think of a bacon, and what Brits think of as bacon are two different food products - I can understand missing the Brit version, which I've never seen for sale in the US>

    As for Hershey's, your assessment is in alignment with my own. Sadly, Hershey's makes Godiva for US consumption as well - one needs to go further afield for proper chocolate. (Lindt dark chocolate, available at my local grocer, makes an acceptable substitute for the real thing.).
