America Is Not The Greatest Country In The World

Whilst on stumble upon, I found this video titled “the most honest three minutes in television history”Β 

What he says and how he delivers it, is incredible. This video is the opening scene of the pilot of the US drama series, Newsroom. For me, its an incredible risk to rant on why they’re not the greatest country in the world, when a lot of Americans are soΒ adamant that it is.

A bold strategy to keep US viewers watching.

I went on to watch the whole 1st series (only 10 episodes) and I strongly recommend it. It’s about how a fictional news company run there stories behind the scenes and trying to overcome commercial pressure into putting on news casts which actually have value.

Although the news company is fictional, the stories they touch on are real, like the oil rig spill and Bin Ladens death.

Once again, I strongly recommend this series. Good cast, good characters and intelligent writing. Just watch the video and have a go at the first couple episodes and then take it from there πŸ™‚

Found this website a couple years ago and got hooked to the point where I was on it for hours at a time.

I’m not sure whether this is a UK/ American or any english thing for that matter but I would suggest this website because it’s the perfect I’m-bored-and-i-wanna-waste-time website.
