Foreign coverage of Ferguson

A version of this parody has been written for most big domestic stories. But these days there's really no need to make one of those parody pieces up.

And for the record, I think the U.S. totally deserves all of the criticism it is getting. Sure, it is a bit weird for the state controlled media in Russia, Iran, or Egypt to criticize police brutality or the arrest of journalists in Missouri when those governments have an even worse record. But that just means that Americans should work harder to live up to our alleged ideals. Even a bad messenger can make a real point.
