From Russia Today -- The Other Story: Home Made Uprising in Madison Wisconsin
A scathing and spot-on piece of analysis by the Russian RT news service, about how US mainstream coverage has obsessively covered pro-democracy protests in Egypt, Bahrain, and throughout the Middle East--but has failed to adequately cover the pro-democracy protests in its own Middle West.
As the accompanying narrative puts it: "The turbulence in the Arab world has drawn the full attention of the American media. Riots and demonstrations in Libya and Bahrain are dominating the news channels' at primetime, and the newspaper front pages. As Lauren Lyster reports, while U.S. leaders fly the flag for popular uprisings thousands of miles away, it's a very different story at home."
