Is America the Greatest Country in the World? from The Newsroom on HBO


I am so sorry that the video is  not available on my post.  You can see if it go to and type in Is America the Greatest Country in the World? or the Newsroom. You will see a blonde woman asking the question.  There may be something more I could do, but I have very limited technological skills !  Smiles. . . . . 


Just as a book can “speak truth” in a clear unexpected way, so can a film.  Please listen to  this to the end.  To me, it is very much to the heart of the matter.

Your  thoughts?

    I have seen this video before and blogged about it. I think it’s right on the $$. First time I heard it I wondered how someone was allowed to put that message out there. Sad to say … it fits so well. This is our current reality! 😦 …. great post!!

      I am so sorry. Thanks for telling me. You can go to and type in IS America the Greatest Country in the world or the Newsroom and see the video with a blond woman standing and asking the question. It is quite remarkable and worth the effort. So sorry !

      Were you able to see if by clicking on it and then seeing it on YouTUbe? I am hopeless with the technology. . . .Have no idea what to do. . . .

        No, it isn’t you. It’s “them” … I think it’s become a widely used video that they disable the sharing.

        You haven’t done anything wrong. To be able to see it now, you need to copy and paste URL on your browser. Making it a bit harder … 😦

  5. Great video. From the perspective of someone who isn’t American, no, America isn’t the greatest country in the world. It’s a great country, but so are a lot of other countries. And given the situation currently in Ferguson, the US needs some soul-searching on race and police accountability. I would really also like, just for once, leaders in the US, UK and Europe to ask, before they meddle in other countries, not whether it’s in their own country’s interest, but is it in the interest of the people in who country they intend to interfere!

      Thank you for this thoughtful response. Ah, the American arrogance. . . does so much trouble in the world. Do you mind telling me where you are from? Big hugs!

  6. Yeah I seen this video. I used to follow this show but not anymore. I loved the pilot a lot and the speech especially …:)
