Why is it that the USA has to bad mouth everyone?

I have a question for our american friends.

Why is it that the USA is so intent on badmouthing everyone else?

Every single time i listen to a US olympic coverage, they are going on and on about OHHH canada said they'd do so WELLL, look at us, we're so amazing and better and they just totally suck!

What a stupid country, saying that they would do well! We're just so much better than they are at everything, look at all our medals!

Yeah, we thought we'd do better than we are, but I'm still really proud of my country, not only for their medals, but for putting forth A LOT of Canadian bests in sports like Luge and cross country skiing. AND for hosting the games! I'm here, and its AMAZING!

At the same time, they are going on and on about everything bad here, no snow, bad tracks, terrible ski runs, protesting, what an awful games etc etc

Excuse me? YOU HAVE 30 MEDALS? Apparently its not treating you TOO badly is it?

I just don't understand. I mean, way to go USA! Your team is doing AMAZING! Thats great! its totally AWESOME!

Can you not be proud of your team WITHOUT putting down someone else in the process?

WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO NEGATIVE ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE?

I just don't get it!

Well..I gotta say first I haven't watched a single minute of the Olympics coverage, it's something I could care less about (sorry to all the Olympics fans).

But I do have to say the USA is constantly badmouthed worldwide over just about anything and everything-so the idea of someone getting their back up about our newscasters perhaps doing the same thing at times kind of cracks me up.

i will agree that the US is unfairly criticized a lot of the time, especially when you look at all of the good things the country does, like all that support to haiti etc.

as i said, i have no issues with the country at all! I was just wondering..

Lexxsmom, you didn't know all Americans live in Igloos? It's a known fact, they wear Mukluks too! Their Kings name is Michael Jordon, I think.

This is how the US media works and the people feed off of it. Dont be affendid we do it to ourselves as well...and I to do not understand why. A perfect example is the war in Iraq and Aphganistan(not sure if my spelling is correct) all I ever har on CNn is how another person was hurt or was killed, yet day after day I see people come back and get aworded bronze stars, purple hearts. I have been there and seen what we do and it isn't all just us killing and getting killed. I also work at te presidents hospitol were we get all these patients and the stores they have to tell are alot better than what is on the news. Sadly though In the US negativity and sarrow sells so that is what we provide. So I know how you feel and all I can say is dnt pay it any mind because you know the truth and tats all that matters.

von, im not talking about hockey!

The usa has a fantastic hockey team, i think they have played 100x better than our canadian team so far and are well deserving of any medal they are awarded.

this isn't about hockey!

I don't think the media in general doe s very good job of doing what they are supposed to do...report. In my opinion there are too many opinions and agenda's in the media and of course there are the few crackpots out there that a lot of people gravitate to. For example I read a couple articles the other day posted on another site and it bashed the hell out of Canada because in the reporter's opinion we were not "owning the podium" like some folks said we would. BIG DEAL it was a couple two bit writers that most people have never heard of....in fact I got a bit of a chuckle out of it.

As far as I'm concerned any country that has athletes competing at an Olympic level should be proud of them and should they bring home ANY medal, well that much more proud.

We love Canada. When Americans travel abroad, if we feel threatened or like we're about to be hasselled, we simply say "I'm Canadian - eh" and we're welcomed.

We have so many members on DT from America and Canada, that as a DT member, I wish all the athletes well.

Not a time to be pointing out our differences, rather lets focus on what we have in common.

It's the Olympics! It's way more fun to be happy for those that win, no matter where they're from.



The right to do something does not mean that doing it is right.

Hmm, that's a theory, perhaps it's a sort of "backlash rhetoric." Sometimes it seems like everything we do is somehow twisted by the global community to be either botched, self-serving, or downright criminal. Just as a recent example, foreigners in Haiti were blaming all of the supply problems on the US Military without even acknowledging the fact that they BROUGHT in most of the aid. It's just always one thing or another - and I don't mean to say that the US doesn't do terrible things in other parts of the world, because we do, but I think on the whole we do a lot more good than harm. When you consider something like the Olympics, where there's this big national stage, I think it's one place where Americans can be sort of smug about their superiority and cloak it in Nationalism, which makes it palatable and even pleasant for some people.

It's ironic because I actually think Americans are the nicest people in the entire world. We love helping people, and we love our country, and we love people who love our country (or even just the ideals it embodies), so I think we take it a little personally when the global community craps on us, and we get a little vicious in return. I bet if America didn't look as economically/militarily weak as it does right now, the rhetoric wouldn't be quite as polarizing. It's probably just a product of the times. These are kind of scary, uncertain times for America.

Or maybe they're just cranky announcers

Considering what the idiot Quebec broadcasters were saying about Johnny Weir, not sure we have a lot of room to talk! Not to mention all the venom that Elvis Stojko has been spewing lately, too.

I think the American media is just too split between left wing and right wing, they're garbage journalists.

On a side note did you see Glenn Beck putting down a public option and then saying he learned this in a book at a public library? What an idiot. If that's the kind of people spreading news of course there is going to be a bunch of ignorant comments blasted everywhere.

Every other country in the world badmouths the USA. Oh well, haha.

I jokingly comment about Canada but in all reality, the one time I was there, I really enjoyed it.

Heh, yeah, I have a pretty close Canadian friend who spends a lot of time spouting about what is wrong/effed up with America and Americans, and most of the time I agree with her, but let me make one tiny comment about HER country and all hell breaks loose. I find it kinda amusing.

No one should take Glenn Beck seriously, he's one long-running joke.

As for the US hockey team winning against the Canadian team, I was expecting Canada to win that one but I was pleasantly surprised at how the game went. I spoke to a couple Canadian friends about it, ribbing them playfully but it was all in good fun.. except my buddy jokingly saying he was eyeballing his shot gun when the US won. LOL.

But I agree with the comments about people from other countries badmouthing America, typically the citizens who they think it's fine to generalize but Heaven forbid you do the same-- that then makes you a stereotypical "arrogant" American.

Its the media in/from the states. They suck. They don't report real news, they report what bumps ratings - and if getting ratings means a competition to see who can rag on Canada the hardest, then that's what they'll do.

This is why I only listen to NPR. I'd rather sew my head to the carpet than listen to/watch mainstream news like FOX, MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, etc.
