“The New York Times opinion team got an early start on celebrating Independence Day, declaring Monday that America is ‘just OK’ with a slickly produced video that argues the United States is only great if you’re wealthy and privileged,” reports Fox News.
“We argue that the myth of America as the greatest nation on earth is at best outdated and at worst, wildly inaccurate,” Times producers Taige Jensen and Nayeema Raza wrote when describing the video.
“Which is basically a gold club of 36 countries, predominantly wealthy, Western and Democratic. And, unlike most golf clubs, this one has got some diversity,” the narrator said. “America is the richest country in this club, but we’re also the poorest with a whopping 18 percent poverty rate, closer to Mexico than Western Europe.”
