In Belgium, that is.

OK, first the news THAT WE GET.

De Stavda, erm, De Standaard, premium - cough - Belgian newspaper, thinks we ought to know that the mother of Glen Doherty, ex- SEAL and one of the three staffers to the late US ambassador to Libya who were also murdered, vehemently opposed to Romney's use of her son's name in his campaign against Obama: 'He should not use my son's death in his political agenda. It's wrong to use these young brave men to discredit Obama'.

Personally, if I were in the woman's case, I'd be more offended by someone calling my son's death a bump in the road than by someone using his name, but OK, fair enough. The title of De Standaard's column reads: 'Mother of killed soldier criticizes Romney':


And now the news that we DO NOT GET.


From CNN's Anderson Cooper, no less (although of all the mainstream US Media, I have to admit that CNN's the least worst, at least that's my impression.)

Uh, hello, De Standaard??

So let me get this straight. Of the four Americans who were murdered in that fateful attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya: Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, we've got almost simultaneously testimonies from the mothers of two of them, namely FS Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and private security employee and former US Navy SEAL Glen Doherty. Smith's mother criticizes Obama, Doherty's mother criticizes Romney.

What coverage do Belgians get?

To ask the question is to answer it.

To finish, let's listen to Bill Whittle, where we can learn a thing or two on liberal bias:

De Standaard is bewitched, too.
