Nobody Sells a New TV Series Like HBO

Now is the time we juxtapose, Small Dead Animals-style:

  • “British star of TV series The Newsroom describes Americans as ‘dangerously uninformed.'”

— Headline, the London Daily Mail, today.

  • “Aaron Sorkin: Dan Rather ‘No Longer on Television.’”

— Headline, Ed Driscoll.com, December 5th, 2011.

Found via April Gavaza who writes, if there’s one thing Americans love, it’s “being told we’re dangerously stupid. Look, Ems, it’s not America’s fault if your new show sucks.”

Related: “Charlie Rose Endorses America is ‘Not Greatest Country’ View of Aaron Sorkin Show.” Has anybody asked Rose or Sorkin which nation they think is doing better and when they’ll be decamping there?
