dc.description.abstract It has been speculated that Americans don't consume the news, and that the news we consume is primarily ethnocentric. On the other side of the equation lie Londoners, who are assumed to be avid news consumers and are very worldly. This year, I set out to see if this is really the case. Studying abroad at the London Center during the Spring 2010 semester gave me to opportunity to experience London news firsthand instead of researching it from afar. Growing up consuming news out of Chicago and going to school and studying the news in Muncie provided me a great background from which to base my comparative observations. I also sought out professional opinions. Finally, I looked into news consumption habits and preferences of British and U.S. citizens. I compiled all of my findings into a website showcasing the differences between British and U.S. news from many perspectives.
