The studios want to make money in foreign markets as well, and "America" doesn't sell very well at all these days overseas. We are no longer seen as the defender of liberty. We are seen as a bully and a defender of torture and abuse. (However you feel about "harsh intorrogations", that is how much of the rest of the world views us now. It will take generations to repair that.)

I know. It's awful, especially when the vast majority of human rights violations are committed by the very countries that misguided Americans tend to champion.

Hollywood could help to fix it. Why does all "propaganda" have to be negative?

I could not disagree more.

America may be unpopular, but that unpopularity isn't very deeply held. America is unpopular because we won't defend immoral regimes. The torture issue is an excuse. There were problems and we fixed them.
America is still the preferred destination for immigrants and revolutions in the Mideast and elsewhere are more about wanting societies like our own than anything else.

There are not a lot of lines in front of the Syrian Embassy for residency visas.
