Have you noticed how much our press wants Americans to think we have a bad reputation abroad?

I don't mind being hated when we are hated by the right people: Nazis, communists, terrorists, dictators, drug lords, etc.

While I think the media has a large hand in shaping public opinion, the research is pretty clear here, Fred. There has been an alarming decrease in international travel to the U.S. And, where international citizens used to be able to tell the difference between citizens and policy makers...that subtle difference is crumbling. I have no problem when bad guys hate us. I do have a problem when good world citizens no longer want to visit America because of how we've been positioned by the international media.
