You guys know why Europeans have such ridiculous ideas about what America is like? It’s because we don’t have an American news media. We have a New York City news media, with some affiliates in LA and DC.
The people who present our image to the world are the most vapid, sheltered, narcissistic, pseudo-intellectual, snoots in the entire country. They seldom venture outside of their neighborhoods and their entire understanding of the rest of their nation is nothing but a big bag or stereotypes and projected neuroses.
Of course other countries have dumb ideas about what America is like. The Americans telling them about America don’t know what America is like either.
