I’ve lived overseas for years and it wasn’t until I watched the Maidan “revolution” did I realize what a difference there is betwen the news seen in the US and the news seen in the rest of the world. I watched BBC, Russia Today, CNN & FOX side by side and it was as if one channel said black and the other said white.
Often, when I talk to other Americans, they don’t understand my politics at all. I’ve come to realize that this is because they only see American News.
Unless you see news that it is outside the sphere of influence of the US news organizations, you’ll never “really” know what’s going on in the world.
