I actually have a high regard for the American media, because I think there is a high level of professional competence in a narrow sense. For example, if some event is taking place somewhere in the world, and I had to choose between the descriptions given by a professional American reporter and reporters from other countries where I know a lot about, I would tend, by and large, to rely on the American reporter. I think there is a high level of professional competence and integrity in a technical sense. That is, I think they are not going to lie. Well, there are some who will, but, by and large, our reporters will, in a sort of technical sense, try to find out what is going on. What goes wrong is the choice of topics, the framework of assumptions, the set of presuppositions within which things are presented, the emphasis, the tone and so on.
