Where is India on the global map?

This is what you would have seen this morning if you had logged on to cnn.com. No mention of the blast on the Samjhauta Express.

66 people die in a terrorist act, and a leading media product of the country that has appointed itself the champion of the global war against terrorism sees no merit in carrying the story prominently.

The international edition does have it on the home page, but tucked away in the headlines, not as the lead story.

Worth a thought: how important is India to the average American?
