headline: "Bizarre News of U.S. is Favored in Britain (by Raymond Daniell) – 25"

Fascinating piece complaining about a "crazy Americans" bias in the British press.

I'd be pretty sure it's still there, though the traditional mainstays -- Red Indians, glamour girls and gangsters -- are doubtless by now replaced by more up-to-date characatures. ;-)
