Gus Ramsey on The Newsroom:
In the opening scene of the show, McAvoy is going to bite his tongue when asked “Why is America the greatest country in the world?” but he thinks he sees his former producer/girl friend in the crowd holding up signs that say “It’s not, but it can be.” This prompts McAvoy to unleash his stamp speech. After watching the first episode that answer also applies to this question, “Is this a great TV show?” It’s not, but it can be.
Ramsey’s entire blog post about The Newsroom is solid. He has professional experience which gives him better insight into how the show relates to real-life. He sings it’s praises, which is good.
