Multimedia, AV A couple of days ago we talked about how the RIAA and NAB are planning on asking US Congress to mandate FM radio chips inside every cell phone. This plan was met with some ridicule, so the NAB decided to write a blog post addressing the critics. Most of the post is overshadowed by an overdose of America's favourite national pastime: WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE. 9/11!

No, we wouldn't comment more on European news if more of it was broadcast here. We'd just change the channel. We're really not interested about what goes in Belgium, or Italy, etc.....I live in Texas. It's bigger than all of Europe combined and has more than enough news and happenings for me to keep up with.

And the last time I checked my satellite system, I DO get a direct feed from the BBC, several Arabic news channels, 3 channels from China, 1 from Spain and 1 from Germany. Bu I don't watch them. I have more than enough going on here to keep me busy.

Yikes. Not all Americans are as insular as you. I think most Americans recognize that there is a bigger world out there and it most definitely DOES affect us. If you can't see that it's because your eyes are closed as evidenced by your provincial mindset.
