The World Through Editors' Eyes

Sherman Oaks, California

A French website has created maps of the world that depict the degree to which countries were covered by various media outlets in 2007.

By clicking -- the map's at the bottom of the page -- you can compare the world as seen by the editor of The New York Times or Slate or the blogosphere as a whole.

South America and sub-Saharan Africa don't receive much coverage in the mainstream press, but Mexico punches above its weight online.

Interestingly, this proves that the U.S. media is not alone when it comes to "only reporting on your own interests."
