I was scanning El Espectador for news on the reelection referendum and I see a story on the front page about Obama’s beer summit: A punta de cerveza Obama zanja crisis racial.

So, I surfed over to El Tiempo and what do I find? Barack Obama se tomó una cerveza en la Casa Blanca con protagonistas de incidente racial.

The BBC? Obama hosts race row beer reunion

Der Speigel International? They had the following headline: “Diplomacy Over Drinks: Obama, VP, Gates and Crowley Meet at the White House” (although the link was to Jake Tapper, so I am not sure if that counts).

No mention, however, at Al Jazeera English.

    No mention at Al Jazeera English?

    Not true, at least not if we take a broader view of Al Jazeera English than their website.

    The story was on their nightly TV news last night.
