Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

What are they? Who are the European-language news outlets that I can read that will reflect the correct way of looking at things? BBC? Guardian? Spiegel?

Quite simply, they are not in English.

EVERYTHING in English has a anti-French, anti-German and anti-European bias. It's not as pronounced in every publication and every article, but it's the general background against which stories are built.

And I do mean this a a sweeping statement.

This is a pretty big problem, then, I would say. If der Spiegel can offer an English version, why can't the journals that tell it the way it is (or should be)?

Apparently the left in Europe is not interested in communicating with the rest of the world?

Does the Le Monde Diplomatique in English have an anti-French, anti-German and anti-European bias?  How about EuroNews in English?

They very well may; I only rarely read them so I wouldn't know.  But as I noted in dvx's diary on Germany, I am often struck by neoliberal undercurrents in Der Spiegel's English version.

Rien ne réussit comme le succès.
