Jeff Daniels has such range as an actor.

I'm curious what the context is here? I know a bit about the show, but who are the other people on stage, and what is the venue for this little rant/speech? Can anyone tell me?

******SPOILERS*******















I watched the first few episodes of the show online a few months ago. I'll recap as best I can real quick...

It's a Q and A at a university with some journalists/political anaylsts. The woman is a lefty, one of the dudes is a righty, and Daniels, prior to that rant, is known as the "Jay Leno" of journalism because he often takes a middle ground and does not offer controversial or partisan opinions. The moderator was pressing him about that reputation earlier on before the clip starts.

When one of the college students goes up to ask him "what makes the USA the greatest country in the world", he snaps. In addition to being pressed about his reputation earlier, the main reason why he flips is because of a woman he sees in the crowd who looks like his ex-girlfriend. His ex is also involved in journalism. The woman is holding up signs saying something like "it's not" "but it can be" or something. You're led to believe he might have hullicinated his ex being there, but, later is the opening seasons it turns out she really was there.

After the controversy of this event, Daniels starts anchoring a new show and starts taking a more critical approach to reporting the news. His ex, the one he thought he saw in the crowd and the inspiration for his changed attitude, becomes his new producer. The show is all about his mission to do offer critical news reporting, and the people involved with producing the show in the "newsroom" and the obstacles they face to keep the show going, like blackmail, corporate pressute to do more ratings friendly stuff....etc...

From the standpoint of exploring problems with modern American media, it is pretty fucking good. Sorkin does a good job integrating real life, already exposed problems into the show's narrative.

What I dislike about the show is some of the drama bullshit surrounding the characters. One of my chick friends is a huge feminist and she hates the show. She pointed out a bunch of stuff to me that kind of ruined it for me, a bit, because I started viewing Sorkin's writing as kind of douchie.

I watched this yesterday and thought the Sloth looked scared.

I had a nightmare about the same sloth last night, he had been abused and he died....but he was very fat.



I feel sorrow for nature.
