There are people who make more money than anywhere else, and some of them are complete jerks who don't help others, and many people judge the whole nation based on a few people's actions. There are people who work extremely hard and earn their money. There are people who make tons of money, or not much money at all, and they help others. But why would anybody hear of these people? You only hear about the rich and famous.
So the whole world judges America on what the media portrays, and because America is the land of the Free, the media can say whatever they want. Unless you know and share both sides of the story about America, no comments either way should be shared.
