Covering the United States 

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

The Global Post asks (and answers) a question: What if journalists wrote about the United States with the same language used when discussing foreign countries?

This is satire. Although the news is real, very little actual reporting was done for this story and the quotes are imagined. It is the first installment of an ongoing series that examines the language journalists use to cover foreign countries. What if we wrote that way about the United States?

It’s well-executed, and somewhat disturbing to read.
