1. That show started off great with that bit. But as I remember, it never really built upon it.

I did enjoy it, just wish it hit a little harder like the scene above.

2. Jesus Christ I'm so fucking tired of this clip being held up as some kind of epiphany when it's

really just the same old white boomer man nattering on, berating a young woman in front of everybody about how great things were in Ye Good Olde Days.

7. About as much as his gender.

Combine the two and you see the type of person who tends to remember the good old days with great affection.

9. That sterotype, and I have met many of them, living in

a Red State Republican family, do not think that America isn't the greatest nation on Earth.
They haven't a clue that there are other nations who have more efficient education and health systems, for example.

The idea that white old folk tend to have a strong understanding that America isn't the greatest in most areas is inaccurate. They are the most nationalistic group who do not tolerate such criticism. Are you telling me that blacks and todays youths aren't more savvy about America's place in the world than old white men?

Yes, they might often harp back to the old days, but that is to a pre-civil rights movement, pre-sexual revolution time when women, gays and POC knew their place, according to their values.

6. Thank you!

I stopped watching the show not only because it was boring as hell, but it had nothing but white people and maybe one or two Asians in it.

No newsroom in America had less diversity - not even Fox.

If I wanted to immerse myself in a bigot's fantasy of a virtually all-white world, I'd go back to watching Woody Allen movies.

10. It's interesting how

commentors who plainly have never seen the show have such strong negative opinions and that they out themselves in the process of expressing said opinion.

I like the segment. I agree with Hoyt that the show didn't quite develop from here enough.
