And you believe what you read in the media about the US? I don't.
I know better.

If you really want to learn accurate things regarding America, while
living in Europe then:

1) find journalist(s) whose words you trust and weigh those in your

2) ask your friends and colleagues, who have spent some time in the U.S.,
questions (and then *listen* to their answers).

3) go spend some time there and experience for yourself. _that's_
the best way.

BTW: I realize that the LA Times is local, and *should* be accurate, but
it still has a slant. As for the news reports that make it over
the Atlantic (International Herald Tribune, television, etc.):
Much of the media reports that the the Americans receive regarding
European life is just as slanted and skewed as the media reports that the
Europeans receive about American life. The writers have their bias,
so it's best to be skeptical.
