Why are so many Americans ignorant about what’s going on in this country and the world? Because they don’t see or hear what’s going on. The list below shows today’s headlines [and these headlines don’t change much from day to day] that the average American is seeing when they go to Yahoo news [and other sites like MSN , which aren’t much different].
