US isolationism in action?

September 26, 2006

This is all over the web and now everyone is having a go at the media for the fact that averagenewsweek_covers.jpg US citizen knows so little about what is happening in the world. But is it the chicken or is it the egg?

Is the US cover different because the media have an agenda about what they want to portray to Americans or because the people would not buy the magazine if it had the other cover? My guess is it goes all the way back to school where the kids are taught very little about anything but the US in history and geography so the interest is never there.
