Yes and no. Russians seem to have more freedom to do stupid shit, while here in the US we have nannies watching your every step.
Hell, there used to be a time when we could go to the hardware store and buy dynamite, now you can't even buy a damn blasting cap.

In the US people are very aware that what you put to video can and will be used against you in the long run, be it a lawsuit or jail time, something most Russians don't seem to fear as much as Americans do.
Consequences used to be a teaching tool for the stupid, but here in the US, taking risks can have far more consequence than simple injury, it can cost you your freedom and income.
It's the goal of the nanny state, make everyone sheep, afraid to venture out as individuals.

Sometimes I wish there were a lot less crazy youtube videos coming from my country, but most Russians were dirt poor when average Americans already made personal home-videos in the '70's, I guess we're still maturing when it comes to videotaping ourselves haha

I laughed hard (despite broken ribs) while watching the video you posted.

I loved that....CRASH.... "must have been second floor window".
From what I've been told, most Russians have dash cams because of lack of police to respond to calls, so you need a recording for the judge.

Yes, you are correct, we all have dash cams for this reason but also because some police are corrupted and ask for money before helping (we are still collectively poor), but they do not if they see you have a cam.

I heard that as well, though I wasn't sure if it was just his opinion, kind of like the lie "Black Lives Matters" Bull shit, of cops targeting blacks, which is a pure Marxist lie.

I can't speak for your country but Russia has suffered due to corruption during Soviet Union, when it failed, some people haven't changed but things are getting better if slowly.

We were actually headed there, anyway, we were under Obozo, I just hope we can turn it around here culturally now that the left is out of power for a long time.

It does not look like your "left" is out of power, they have most of your media and will be causing a lot of grief for your new president.

Actually, the Dim party is essentially out of power for an entire generation.
But as for the media, they will have to contend with a new front opening up on the right, a defiance they've never faced before.

I can understand why you might believe that. You have probably depended on the regular media for your information and they do not tell the truth. If one studies the elections of 2010, 2014 and now 2016 it is obvious the misinformation that has been spread has been rejected. Conservatives understand what we are fighting and we are winning. One tip going forward is do not listen to what the MSM is saying, but look at what is actually happening.

No matter which party is in power, their very job description is to print the truth and raise hell. Now it's a living incarnation of the song "Dirty Laundry" --- you just have to look good, you don't have to be clear.

Some observers think that began with celebrity journalism: everyone going through journalism school wanted to be an Edward R. Murrow and fearlessly do SOME damn thing. Especially if it was on-camera. Hence the dreadful parade of Fox News talk show hosts grooming themselves for a later run (*cough* Kasich *cough*) and the like.

Stare at enough cleavage and legs, most men can't even recall the topic. Fox News got rich on that. Maybe it's strippers doing "Naked News U.S.A.", who knows, if their ratings ever fall.

I guess watching Trump's recent press conference was an eye-opener, representatives of the media behaved like zoo animals and Trump was pitching them left and right, hope his behaviour encourages more impartial reporting. I'm just outside looking in.
