Pure bullshit from the New York Times

A nation whose global image is built on
openness to the world’s needy and ambitious

is now viewed as closing its doors
in a way it never did even after Sept. 11, 2001.

The above is the description on the New York Times webpage
on 2017-01-30 at 1830 EST
for the article by David E. Sanger
In Days, Trump Upends America’s Enduring Image.

Really? That is what built America's global image?
Not in my opinion, by a long shot.
How about America's record of political and economic success?
I have read many accounts of the collapse of the USSR;
invariably the credit is given to America's political and economic success,
NOT to what the supreme bullshit artists at the New York Times claim
in the quote above.

Talk about fake news!
