Can you say why America is the greatest country in the world? Literally, I am asking you and asking you for a reason.
Many years ago, actor Jeff Daniels was in a TV show written by genius Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) called The Newsroom, and it gave us a peek behind the “journalism” curtain with a frankly very fresh take on how democracy, news, and the people behind Oz’s proverbial curtain. But it was a show too honest and too ahead of it’s time to get the recognition it deserved, though one moment stood out to many. It was the moment that very question was both asked and answered.
As you will see, Jeff Daniels was posed that very query and for someone related to politics and news, his answer was too honest and frank and essentially doomed the show, via the conservative audience. And though this clip may be old, I know MANY have not seen it and it has never been more apropos regarding America than right now:
