14 March 2013

We've all seen the majority of US television, and US news, and US politics. Most of us, like myself, are dumbfounded (perfect term) by the ignorance of, what appears to be, the entire population.
All we see, as foreign observers, is reality television, trivial daytime TV and the such. We hear stories of poor people opposing free healthcare, stories of evident propaganda and stories of excessive cults of celebrity personalities. 

Once in a while a US TV show comes along that changes our mindsets. The Newsroom is that show.
It is not only witty, well-rounded and objective, it serves as an omen against such things. The protagonist is a talented curmudgeon, disheartened and disgruntled by what the media has become. He feels the only one left with a passion for journalism, a thirst for objectivity.

Today's Daily Quota is the opening scene of the first season of The Newsroom.
Before it even went to air, it had already become one of the most popular opening scenes of all time, not to mention one of the most honest rants about contemporary American culture.

If you haven't already seen it, do so. Now.
