The Americas(English)

San Francisco, Saturday January 21st 2006

The current anti-american ideology in Europe, where I currently live, is mostly fed by people who have never or barely been in USA. They have build up an image of america which circle around Fox News, the neo-cons and Haliburton.
Of course, as always when one has to deal with ideology, it does not fit with the complex reality. America's diversity and open mindness is also, and much more nicely, represented by people such as Al Franken, Bill Maher, Larry David and media such as the New York Times, to name but a few. Nobody in Europe reads the New York Times and no-one has ever heard of these individuals who are fighting for america's freedom in their own, usually very clever and funny, way.
