Spiegel Anti-Americanism Lite

I had to laugh when I saw this less than subtle image of an evil corporation draped in American flags in an article about those naughty boys at Goldman Sachs at Spiegel Online. Alas, the editors can’t throw out the kind of in-your-face red meat to the legions of Amerika haters among its readers that they used to rake in the coin with a decade ago. Times have changed, people across the pond are watching, and one must keep up at least some threadbare remnant of the appearance of respectability. Don’t worry, though. Its readers get the drift, even if Spiegel now has to leave the blatant hate mongering seen in these images to the lesser rags.
