That's more to do with the nature of propaganda in the US v. Europe than anything else.

Our schoolbooks are full of pro-American propaganda, like more or less everything taught about the War of 1812 (though less so today than 50 years past).

European propaganda tends to be more about rubbishing everyone else; ours is about talking up ourselves.
