The World According to Newspapers

The UK's Online Journalism Blog features maps that show the world in 2007 through the eyes of editors-in-chief. The larger (smaller) the country on the maps, the more (less) media attention. See the world according to London's The Sun above.

Looking at the three British dailies, editors favour countries that are bigger and more populous, but also closer to home and better developed. They also give more room to the countries of origin of British immigrants, especially if they are white (look at the size of Australia and New-Zealand).
