All Eyes on America
Prior to the U.S. presidential election, the online-edition of the German magazine ‘DER SPIEGEL’ gives a good summary of the different opinions in the German press. Most newspapers warn against exaggerated enthusiasm for John Kerry.
“BILD” backs Bush
Despite the fact that most Germans want to see a victory of John Kerry in the election, Germany’s best-selling tabloid paper “BILD” (circulation of 4.7 million) has decided to endorse the incumbent President Bush. The German “New York Post” equivalent which is known for its lightly dressed front page pin-ups is convinced that Bush will do a better job in reaching out to his allies in his second term in office.
A Tearjerker of a Tale
Like many relatives of celebrities, Lothar Vosseler, half-brother of German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, tries to get his piece of the action.

The content might drive Chancellor Schröder to tears… (nice pun, huh?)
