"tbh, look at the people on TV in America. Everyone else looks at America from a TV or through the Internet. That is where foreigners get their impression of your country from. Seriously, The View, what the f#ck is that sh#t? "LOL... Yeah I can see someone watching UPN or Jerry Springer and being like WTF. What is wrong with them, are they retarded? "
Exactly, I mean I don't judge it that way 'cause I speak to Americans and I know they aren't all trainwrecks. But look at it this way, if you only ever watched those kooky Japanese game shows you'd think Japan was a madhouse. The problem is, your first impression of a place is what sticks with you and most peoples first impression of America is something garbage on TV.
