Thankfully we have Hala Gorani on the international side of CNN. Although I rarely watch CNN I have heard her making comments about the idiocy of the American 'anything for safety' mentality. I was frankly surprised that she was left unchecked and uncensored, but the international versions of CNN tend not to be waving the American flag as frequeuntly.
