Different Coverage

I read the English online version of the Israeli paper, Haaretz, and was surprised in the last few days to find it had absolutely no coverage of the devastation in New Orleans. Finally my son pointed out that the Hebrew version of Haaretz did have it, in fact New Orleans was the top of the news.

I can only speculate why the English version would be so different. Perhaps it assumes that if we read English, we can get that get our international news elsewhere. Perhaps it doesn't want to offend...

CL: Its been the top news item every day on Israel TV news...maybe not top on radio or newspapers, but its defintly in the background every day.
