I took your advice and avoided reading the blogger's comments, instead I only checked out his links, but it all kind of speaks for itself, I think!
Intersting site. They seem like a bunch of Republican cheerleaders for sure, but they're obviously not making up their source material.
Your example of Anti-American bias in the German mainstream media is pretty weak, though. There are a lot of links on the Medienkritik site that do a much better job of proving your point, like this one, where the Stern so succinctly sums up the history of America and its people:
"The History of the USA: No nation has ever dominated the globe like the USA. And its people could care less about the rest of humanity." (Huh! I thought they just didn't like bush)http://medienkritik.typepad.com/blog/2005/09/...
Here's another little gold nugget from the same page about US recent history from 1981 to the present, entitled "Rambo wants to rule the world" ('81 to the present? Wait a minute, that also includes the Clinton years!) :O
Or this one, where the "bloodsucking" American (no doubt the "Heuschrecke" from Spiegel's often-referenced "Heuschrecken-Alarm") :o ) has a big hooked nose and gold tooth (Goebbels lässt Grüßen!). And the worst thing is that it's from IG Metall, which is Germany's biggest union. I was in Germany at the time that was magazine supposedly printed, and where was the outcry!
You don't have to be a Bush-loving republican, or a even a fan of that blog (they're too angry), to find this kind of stuff just plain wrong.
Here are a couple of things that I found on my own recently on the Spiegel website:http://www.spiegel.de/dossiers/
George W. Bush: Der Albtraum-Präsident
or this onehttp://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/weltall/0,...
where "Bush declares himself Master of the Universe"
With an attitude like that, can you trust anything that they print about Bush from now on? These are Germany's number one and two-selling news magazine, people? If you can't get the straight dope here, where are you going to turn next? The Bild Zeitung?
Of course, you really don't need this blog to tell you about any of this stuff if you follow the German newsmedia on a regular basis. I just don't get what they're trying to accomplish with this. Are they doing anything productive except angering the few Americans, such as myself, who have actually taken the time to study their language? Does it really make them feel better about themselves to keep running the US into the ground with half-truths and attack journalism? Does is solve any of Germany's problems to tirelessly construct this Feindbild? Do they really think it has any effect on anything going on inside the US? When I'm in the States and folks ask me "Why do does Europe dislike us", I tell them to just forget about it, since people on the other side of the pond were never getting an honest appraisal of our country in the first place on which to base their (pre)judgements. And while I'm on the topic of fair appraisals of my country, if you want an honest German assessment of the US, go to Milan Obradovic's "Living in America" blog, which is linked to the www.stern.de website (of all places). It's amazing how much the opinions of actual Auswanderer differ from those propagated in the big print rags and state TV stations.
My only consolation when reading this kind of junk is the knowledge that Germans treat themselves this badly as well. Bitching and moaning is the German national pastime, at least according to the Spiegel article on Germans entitled "The German National Pastime: Whining, Bitching and Moaning". Well, at least they don't hate us anymore than they hate themselves!
