MediaMinded takes a look at the differences between American and British newspapers. One startling fact that you may not be aware of: Many British national newspapers top American papers in circulation–that in a country of about 58 million people. How can this be? I think one answer has to do with “bias.” The British national newspapers are aligned with the various political factions in England. They make no pretence of objectivity. And, according to several landmark studies dating back to the 1950s, citizens find partisan information more politically useful than so-called objective information.
