How did the British Press Cover the American Revolution

In Foreign Policy Magazine, Eliga H. Gould examines the lousy press coverage America got after the Revolution and argues that we would do well to remember that coverage when we examine events in the Middle East. One of the lessons we can learn, he argues, is "how difficult it is for one nation to understand what is happening in another." "Even more important," he argues, "the American Revolution reminds us that whatever comes of the upheavals sweeping the Middle East, it will be the Arab people, not observers in the West, who ultimately decide their fate."
