Gaijin Media Reaction to the Economic Package

Out of curiosity, I looked around to see what some of the main actors were saying; here’s my report. I should look at FT, The Economist, and the magazines, but not tonght.

WaPo does by far the best job—there’s some real depth here—though it suffers from what I think is an overreliance on pro-government sources. I trust the headline comes from the copy desk, and not the writer(s).

NYT provides some color on the details of the latest package.

No obvious mistakes by BBC, and the headline is matter-of-fact. It’s not print journalism, so I’m not going to complain.

CNN shows what happens when you look at the box-and-arrow diagrams on the government pdf document, then go out and interview a few analysts from securities firms to put together a report.
