I skim through US newspapers, hardly watch an TV news except now i watch a little bit of CNN. With probability 1, I can say there ZERO coverage, and if at all any coverage, its Indian Uncle Tom perverts trying to provide some atrocity literature like that Atlantic rubbish. This crap about them "caring for the poor" or ModiJi's so called "callousness towards the poor" are standard staple colonial diet. Absolutely nothing new, nada, zilch. One has to have zero IQ to think and believe that Indian govt is callous. They aren't but they know the scale of the effort required to fight this virus and all the trade-offs and pros and cons of a particular decision, and its not going to be a pretty sight.
What I find striking is how US media like say CNN contrasts Indian DDM, particularly the Lutyen media. In the case of CNN, all you will see is reams and reams of obsession with every little details that afflicts US from genuine news worthy stories to crap and everything in between, but all focused on US and US alone.
In contrast, DDM Lutyen media acts and thinks so 'globalist' as if India is part of the global elite, rather than focusing on what afflicts India. Except for dorkie, and credit to him for that, everybody else falls way short. But he is too f!king loud, obnoxious, and arrogant to watch him. And those who do focus on India, its a with 2 aims in mind: 1) How bad ModiJi is, and 2) drain inspector reports for the white west like Burka Bibi's dispatches.
