The BBC on San Bernardino: "just another day in the United States of America"

BBC World News is clearly fed up with gun violence in America. Here's how it started a report on the shooting in San Bernardino, California, that killed upward of 14 people on Wednesday:

Just another day in the United States of America — another day of gunfire, panic and fear. This time in the city of San Bernardino in California, where a civic building is apparently under attack.

If this sounds like the way the US would cover some war-torn, faraway country few Americans could find on a map, you're right — and that's probably deliberate. The BBC World News team has apparently read that Onion article about as many times as many Americans have.
