Two way street

On the back of my Hitchens/Galloway post from yesterday, I was gently prodded by a friend to point out that, just as Brits are often presented with a warped view of what Americans think, so too it is apparent that Americans are capable of presenting a warped view of what the British think. Hence, in the Baruch College notice about tonight's debate, George Galloway is described as a "highly respected Member of Parliament".

Yes, this seems to be a good example of American ignorance of the political atmosphere in the UK. Many things come to mind when speaking of Galloway, but "highly respected" is certainly not one of them.

Consider the point noted, Mark.

How about: GG "whose virulent anti-Americanism is widely disseminated by British media"?
