..........It would appear that the  NZ media have lost interest in  the US of A. The war in Iraq grinds on, the financial crisis continues, and yet Obama is strangely absent  from the news. We got bombarded with Bush on a daily basis, what has suddenly changed?

I still see stuff daily, but I don't really take notice, I watch TVNZ news though - can't say I've noticed it's any less than Bush, less of the pisstaking now of course

I would find that highly refreshing, if I watched the news 

why don't we hear more from European countries?

the obama saviour has arrived, all is well, world peace will follow shortly, no bad news to report and no "bushisms" anymore.

so we now gather news from china and the subcontinent, we need to take an intrest in our new trade partners wellbeing. i wonder if china will send an "aid mission" to recover the sunken ferry... or buy them a new one..

They're prolly too scared to report anything but warm fuzzies in case the 'race' card is pulled

Last thing I heard about the US President was when a African American child interviewed him.

if you are a bast**d - you are in the news all the time. But if you are a nice guy - then the coverage is not so much. So - if oyu want to be popular - then you need to be a bast**d.

Sad - but true!!

The Europe thing is partly due to the time difference.  TV nowadays is so much about the 'infotainment live cross' and I'd imagine that's a tad more tricky with the time difference.

but we have a large difference between anywhere in the northern hemisphere. I see it as a matter of affiliations and america wanting to stay top dog.

Obama is boring. The sheep want to be entertained. Plus Bush's purpose in the media has been acheived (fear/war mongering). Now its time to play the hero again...
