Does The World's Media Behave The Same

Big news. Bombings in London. All the media obviously report how many dead and injured. We all like to know that. The Australian media then concentrates on how many Australians have been injured and in what state of health they are. This annoys me somewhat. What about the Czechs, Slovaks, Lithuanians, Greeks, Thai? How many of them were affected?

Most importantly, how many Finns were involved? There must have been quite a few of them after Jacques Chirac told the world that British cuisine was only better than Finnish cuisine in Europe. The place must have been jam-packed with them. Just how did they fare?

Is the rest of the world's media so short-sighted? Do the US papers only report on the number of Americans caught up in all of this?
