Why do Americans have to read The Daily Mail, The Canada Free Press and The Telegraph to know what’s happening in their own country? UPDATED

Have you noticed how many US stories break first in the Daily Mail? And The Telegraph. And if you want trenchant analysis, try the Canada Free Press. American potentates featured in the stories have a press corps following them about, a strangely blind press core that sees little but wants to know if Obama beat Tiger Woods. Are the press all journolists, lickspittles and unpaid operatives of the Democratic party? Friends of good government will speak up and report as their eyes see and their ears hear. “ As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend”. These are no friends.
Why The Daily Mail and The Telegraph?
They don't have special access.
I haven't attached examples.
Just watch for a few weeks and see where the surprise stories are coming from.

On a related note:
When a fraudster from "The Daily Currant" claimed Sarah Palin was joining Al Jazeera because she wanted to reach millions of devoutly religious people, it was swallowed hook line and sinker by an outraged Washington Post columnist.  One short week later, HuffPo blogger, Democrat Naomi Wolf, is
going to work for Al Jazeera, it's all business as usual.  I thought it was a spoof at first!

UPDATE:  How can this be published in England first? Since April, Verizon has been handing over some information on millions of US phone calls every day to NSA.


UPDATE Sept 21 2013:  Guardian breaks story that in 1961 when an atomic bomb accidentally fell in North Carolina, three of the four safeties failed.   
The full article is over at The Guardian. Additionally, if anyone can come up with a probable reason why the British press keep scooping American media on American news, I'm all ears. Besides the standard "our media is a bubbling cesspool of bias and incompetence", that is.
