5. As I have no doubt said before, my strong suspicion the reason the UK broadcast media are so keen on America is (a) speaks English (b) cheap to get to (c) safe(ish) (d) endless amounts of material to broadcast including quite a lot of wacky stuff (e) the 5 to 8 hour time difference means things happen nicely out of sync with our clock so that our media have something to broadcast overnight (things happening in the evening in the U.S.) and in the morning (things that happened in the evening in the U.S.). [It is the same with travel reports on the radio, they are largely useless, but are there to give the shows pace and engender a spurious feeling of connection].
