America is a country filled with people, just like every other country. People will always have good points and bad. The media in America is a major contributor to a world view that doesn't see far from their own borders. Well, at least for people in older generations who don't know how to use the internet and only watch TV for information. Canada often likes to poke fun at the gullibility of Americans. For some reason a lot of Americans tend to think that Canada is full of a bunch of lumberjacks and igloos. Although, we don't do much to help change these myths because people I know are always telling Americans stupid things like we travel around via ice flow, and that we don't have TV or crazy stuff like that. The surprising thing is the amount of people that actually believe them.

I haven't actually met and American is under those notions, but there was a special on CBC where a comedian would go down into the US, pretending to be a news reporter and ask Americans their opinions on fake news. He would get people to congratulate Canada on various things like getting our first ten miles of paved road, or getting staplers. He even had some people believing that we sent our elderly people out on icebergs when they got too old.

America is a great place for cinema. Some of their TV is good, but I much prefer Asian television, at least, Asian dramas. I may end up crossing the border to work in animation, or film one day.

I kind of agree with thefinalword. A few well places nuclear bombs and our country will resemble the surface of Mars. Barren and lifeless. Though I don't necessarily agree with the war on terror, I don't think President Bush has totally fucked up the country. A lot of stuff got bombed back when Clinton was president, but because of all his guest appearances on shows and the whole Monica Lewinski scandal, the media couldn't have possibly cared less. There's a lot of good things that he's done, but because of the media's ability to abuse its freedom of the press, almost none of it is known by the majority of the country. It's kinda saddening. The only time you'll really see good news being broadcast is when nothing bad has happened, meaning the only time the media shows that is when they have "nothing better to do." Why? Because bad news is all that most people want to hear.

As we all know, a lot of people in America hate George Bush, including several of my relatives and friends and many of you crunchyroll users here. Many of these people will read newspapers or internet articles or watch TV for hours to find the smallest mistake or slip-up that the president makes. Many newscasters know this all too well and, mainly to increase ratings, will raise this to the top of the priority ladder.

Am I blaming the media for all of America's problems? No, because it's not really their fault. They're just doing what they can to get noticed and do their job. Do I agree with all their methods? No. Some of the stuff they do isn't right.

As for President Bush, he may or may not (depending on your opinion) have made mistakes in the past, but cut him a little slack. Being the President of the United States is a really hard job. For anyone.

However, for those of you who can, if you really hate him that much, then just vote for someone else during the next election so America will be less likely to be led by him next time around, or vote to have him impeach if you want him gone that badly.


America won't be led by him anymore anyway because he already had two terms in office which means he'll never be president again. Thanks to Republicans who after FDR's long term in office made a bill to limit the amount of time a single person can be President of the USA.

I believe a lot of the media sucks and is rubish. There's also a lot of racism going on with the media today and because of that have stopped watching certain news programs because of their views on certain people. I don't want them feeding me propaganda bulls***.

even if every person in the united states kills 133 people, quantatively speaking, will that kill each and every of the 1.2 billion people in China? haha...
Just a thought experiment, not intending to cause arguments.

Ok now you pissed me off. I'm a Californian and I hate what you said. You know California is among the most expensive places to live in the US. What do you think people magically get money out of nowhere.It magically fell out of the sky and everyone can pay their bills. People have to work hard for what they have and to pay their bills. Maybe you're the lazy one here but all I know are hard working people. I hate the attitude people have about California we're not all surfers, I live in the valley the ocean is 3 to 4 hours away, we're not all hippies either i've never seen one. Just because California is suppossedly laid back, which personally I don't see it, people assume laziness goes along with it. People know how and need to relax because of stress or work. Prejudice is not a nice thing. It's just like me saying everyone in nevada is a prostitute, or all people from Texas are hicks, all people from New York are rude bastards etc. Quit with all this damn IGNORANCE.
