I tend to read news articles with a large dose of skepticism (even
more, web articles and summaries). I've seen too many hugely biased
articles about the U.S. from non-U.S. sources to think otherwise.

Nowadays (*especially* nowadays) I'll believe what is said in a piece
of writing only if I see a large collection of articles to provide a
balanced perspective, or if I trust the source for other reasons.

This article set off my "DANGER: Huge-bias" Detector. He's an
anthropologist ... *of course* there's a scientific theory for the
(Western) newspaper (of which, gives always highly accurate information..
err...) so that the article is "credible" for the readers ...

The article so biased, that it's almost a cliche.
