In Praise of the Financial Times

John Judis has done a couple of posts recently noting how much better the Financial Times does of covering events outside the borders of the United States than do American newspapers. I agree and was tweeting the other day about how much more impressive the FT is than American papers. In their defense, American papers do tend to be as-good or somewhat-better at covering U.S. domestic political intrigue (what did Mitch McConnell say yesterday?) but there are lots and lots of good new media and/or specialty news outlets doing that kind of thing.
