yes, we have propaganda. it is usually directed at swaying elections and opinion as far left as possible.
the fact that we don't have a lot of european news is not sinister, it's logical. we have a big country. there is lots of news. there's not enough time to cover everything. now...if you want more world news you can watch one of the 24/7 channels, bbc, etc.
go to Europe and watch the news and you don't get a lot of US news other than things that will impact europe, or things that they want to make fun of. as an example, you'll get a lot of coverage of any gun violence as the "reporters" tsk, tsk, the violent americans. most of the time the have the story and the back story wrong, but they meet the agenda.
many of the European news organizations, especially on the TV, are getting some kind of government subsidy. they are not independant as we know it.
everyone has their own agenda. knowing the agenda is part of making good consumer decisions.
The zimmerman tape editing was a good example. NBC was not the only one to do it. as i was writing something, i wanted to hear or read the entire 911 call. i had to do some searching to find a site that had an unedited version. listening to the unedited 911 call gave a different perspective on the whole thing and made the trial outcome much easier to understand....which, i'm sure, is why it was harder to find the unedited version.
