Does HBO have another Sunday night blockbuster with 'Newsroom.'  Jeff Daniels stars a network news anchor Will McAvoy.  The opening scene is tirade sparked by a college student asking why "America is the greatest country in the world."
The Will McAvoy character replies with an impassioned plea for a return to reason, a respect for intelligence over irrationality.

Listen to the speech. I'm curious to know if you agree with what Will McAvoy says.

(Note- due to language, this video is NSFW, it is HBO after all.)
