I tire of sensationalism in the news. That includes blogs. And it includes this blog. Claiming the sex story was part of anti-American sentiment is exactly that. And it's ridiculous. It would have been the same with a German guy. Because sex sells, and death sell, and unusual death sell best. Of course, anti-Americanism sells as well. But there's no stereotype of lusty American sex tourists. There is simply no anti-American angle for that story, and claiming there is just to make a point is the very thing you criticize about the media. It pushes the division. Why don't YOU focus on the good 97% instead of fighting fire with fire? Please.
