    "More important is the widespread assumption in Germany, despite the *jaundiced* view millions of Germans still take of the Bush administration, that the United States must remain Germany's most important ally."
    (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/05/02/magazine/02...)

    The article describes the Iraq-war opposition in the German public, it's anti-Bush and anti-Rumsfeld sentiment and pacifistic tendencies after 1945. "Jaundiced view" cannot have anything to do with envy here. It's rather anger. "Jaundice" can mean "Vorurteil", so "jaundiced" could be at least sth in that direction.

    Alle von mir gefragten Wörterbücher haben als eine der Definitionen "envy" oder "jealousy". Daher halte ich "neiderfüllt" nicht für falsch.

    M-W:
    1: affected with or as if with jaundice
    2: exhibiting or influenced by envy, distaste, or hostility <a jaundiced eye>

    AHD:
    1. Affected with jaundice. 2. Yellow or yellowish. 3. Affected by or exhibiting envy, prejudice, or hostility.

    Oxford-Duden:
    jaundiced - verbittert; zynisch
    jaundice sb. against sth./towards sb. - jmdn. gegen etw./jmdn. einnehmen
    with [a] jaundiced eye - (enviously) neidvoll; mit Neid
    have a very jaundiced view of life - dem Leben voller Verbitterung gegenüber stehen

    Pons-Collins:
    jaundiced - a: (lit) gelbsüchtig; b: (attitude) verbittert, zynisch
    to take a jaundiced view of sth - in Bezug auf etw (acc) zynisch sein
    to regard sth with a jaundiced eye - eine zynische Einstellung zu etw haben

    ___________

    I agree that 'neiderfüllt' alone is misleading and would at least suggest that other options be added. For anything more complex than technical or geographic terms, it's helpful to see a range of meanings at a glance. The advantage LEO has over print dictionaries is that it can offer more entries at little greater cost.

    My own sense is somewhere between M-W's 'distaste' and AHD's 'prejudice': neither embitterment or cynicism as an inherent trait, nor a random, unjustified bias, but more a sour distaste caused by previous bad experiences.

    'JaundiZed' is a typo, found neither in LEO nor in the example sentence.
