I think he has just literally hit the nail on the head and too few people are realizing how profound what he just did is. I think this interview will
be interpreted differently from numerous perspectives.
He wasn't trying to be funny. He was being completely serious and the anchors were too dumb to acknowledge any of it so they just laughed at him. I
think the news anchor realized how poignant his points were about half way through, and got nervous. Typical American media. After this, I'm keeping
an eye open for when he's on tour.
I say fair play to the anchor to say that she contributes to a fair amount of national psychosis and mental illness, that was certainly encouraging,
whilst her later nervous breakdown after admitting this was not. At least she finished by laughing with Brand. Also Russel pointing out that the
people by the computers were not even at the keyboards but were in fact chatting to each other behind the chairs staring at MSN screen savers was
rather amusing. Look at how important they try to look after he points this out

Ahh damn you managed to post this before I reached 20 posts.
I applaud Brand for his performance in this video. I'm surprised he didn't start yelling, he kept his cool. We need more celebrities like him to
come out and speak out against this tyrannical government. Give praise to the whistleblowers.
I love Russell....He is very funny! His movies are great (minus Arthur) and this is just more of the same for me!! I wish more celebrities would
step up like this.....I love seeing media get bashed by someone famous!!
