Skip to comments.The most honest three and a half minutes of television, EVER... (Stage 3 Hurl Alert)

Link is a 3.5 minute video clip of the beginning scene of the new HBO series The Newsroom explaining why America's Not the Greatest Country Any Longer.
See why I don't watch TV?
For those who don't want to watch - college students are asking candidates "Why is America the greatest country in the world?" and a few candidates give trite happy answers and the "real" candidate (i.e., lib) goes on a disgusted monologue that starts with the answer "AMerica is NOT the greatest country in the world..." and then devolves into rapidfire statistics (e.g., 178 in infant mortality" or that we lead the world in the "number of people who believe in angels") In staccato type fashion he contemptuously lists "damning" stats about the US and then sadly laments how we used to be great.
It’s not that I think the US is without fault - the clip is just so over the top tripe.
Not even clever. Just Left-wing drivel delivered with a sledge hammer.
I’ve seen this posted several times before. All I could think about was how hot the blonde coed was. Her boobs are probably smarter than all the yahoos lapping up Harry Dunne’s verbal diarrhea put together.
We don’t get HBO (Homosexual Box Office) and I read things like this and realize we’re not missing anything.
The libs just love it. Their wet dream fantasy.
seems like everything on TV is liberal propaganda these days
So with the dems in charge we are no longer the greatest nation? Guess I will be voting the other way then.
America ranks low on infant mortality because a lot of other nations don’t even try to save premature babies - they classify them as ‘stillborn’ and let them die.
The greatest nation in the ENTIRE WORLD to have a baby with health problems and/or premature is the USA - and don’t let any liberal idiot tell you different unless they can explain the discrepancy in how the numbers are reported and how letting babies die and pretending they couldn’t be saved makes them “greater” than the USA.
Visit the Harvard Square,as I do pretty regularly,and you’ll see that clowns like him are a dime a dozen.
No country ever has been,or ever will be,perfect...or anywhere close to it.But this country is just about the least imperfect ever established by humankind.
That show is a joke and Sorkin thinks he’s so clever.
Apparently Michelle Bachman said, God, told her to run. So, one of the reporterettes is upset because she says she’s a Christian and it offends her to hear this and she says she’s representing millions of Christians who are also upset. Sorkin really is too clever by half. It’s like the losers who call Rush and say they’re been conservatives all their lives but now they’re going to vote for Obama.
It’s so transparent, you must be a rabid lefty to think they’re pulling the wool over anyone’s eyes.
I hope the show is cancelled soon, they must re-air it at least ten times a day.
