Guys like Conan and Leno aren't even Hollywood.

Man, if we gave Jon Stewart a bigger show, I'm sure the world would love us.

How about no shows, then we'd love you.

I like the Daily Show...

^But you should blame the major networks, cause the fatcat executives are the ones that are internationalizing this filth.

I thought it was slightly incredible that I had to point out to a friend living in San Francisco that the Cuban military were undertaking their biggest exercises in forty years by using the BBC (British) news website, because nowhere in America was giving any sort of coverage to the event.

A lot of people see this as an indication of how America is an ignorant country with regards to the wider world. I see it as an indication of how the American mass media is ignorant with regards to the outside world.

Well the media is giving what the american people want. It's really f*cking sad too, any time there is an international tragedy (such as the recent tsunami disaster) the media here likes to focus on how many *american tragedies there are. Like with Iraq, they never talk about iraqi civilian casualties. Sometimes I feel its more than just ignorance, perhaps it is racism as well.

That saddens me. Over here the news started on BBC one at 10pm, and it spent the first 15 minutes of the programme focussing on the relief effort in South East Asia, as is only right in such a time of tragedy.

as previously stated, all nations do this self-dignifying. i say i couldnt care less how many people died from which country. the sad part is that the poeple died, and their families have to bear.
sitcoms are the lowest form of entertainment available to the media, and are no better than such "reality" shows such as the batchelor, or outback jack and such.

franscar, your next botham can kiss my arse. there will be victory for the poms

I think you missed a word out there, although I hope not. Victory for the poms sounds nice, a bunch of limeys dancing through the streets of Melbourne, warms the heart doesn't it? Well, probably not yours, but it does mine.

Andrew (being me) 's Anayilse on Todays Society...

We Look to others... We look to others too much, we dont care how we feel about ourselves. Its always what other people's opionons will be and how they will view us. We know longer live life for our pleasure and do things for ourselves... The majority doesnt wake up at 2 in the afternoon walk down to the river feed the ducks, climb a tree and read a book up there.

And its because the world has got pre-conceived ideas on how life should be lived. Work 9-5, come home eat go to bed... sure they get money.... but what do they spend it on? Tv's, Cars and Houses... What does all thay amount to? Nothing! What does that amount to when your dead... When your dying and your life flashes before your eyes... what will you see... the joy on your face when u just buy a new TV or Car... No Not memories of you Climbing Mount Everest or falling out of trees... But watching TV.

A cheap way of entertainment... A cheap Unforfilling way of entertainment...

And i am basically contridicting everything i say, by riderculing the way people live there lives. The point i am trying to make is that nobody lives there life for them selves anymore... and what does that amount to, not a whole lot =(...

Oh and back on topic everybody hates America cause there jealous of its Fame and Celebrity (another pre conceived idea, what makes being a celebrity cool? There is no real reason there no different to the rest of society).

Most People will bitch and Moan about America... But if you offer them a place in America to live... they'll take it.

Andrew, The Aussie.
