It is always a good thing for a culture to consider how it is viewed by others. What do Europeans, or the Chinese, or the Canadians, really think of us Americans? This is true for the press too.
I have now come across a French website that looks at the press, including the American press, written by Antoine de Tarle, long-time editor of L'Ouest France and former president of French Catholic Television. Let me confess a bias. I met Antoine in the early 1990s and whenever he is in Washington, we go to Mass and break bread. He is a lovely man but, more importantly for blog readers, he is an endlessly perceptive man. Check out his site.
