news organizations can now get back to cutting their overseas bureaus

there was a brief moment when international news seemed to dominate american news sources. the protests in the arab world, the earthquake-tsunami-nuclear catastrophe in japan and a shiny new war in libya all seemed to push washington news off the front page, at least for a little while.

that seems to be mostly over now. the american media has turned back to its usual navel gazing (D.C. being america's navel)
