One of our readers wrote in with this:
"You may be interested in this article at Focus titled “U.S. Kids are Fat and Lazy.” This article represents the core of the anti-Americanism that permeates all levels of the German media. They pick only negative stories and present them in a mocking, sneering tone."
Focus: "US Kids are Fat and Lazy"
It must have taken a lot of professionalism, class and journalistic integrity for the headline writer to come up with that. Just another day of ugly stereotypes in German media. Our reader's comments really say it all. (Posted by Ray D.; Hattip Bret K.)
