This is a condensed and more polished video than the original (http://youtu.be/dmybO35F_EI), which was a response to NBC News coverage and other criticisms of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics that incorrectly claim Common Core does not allow the "standard" approach to solving math problems (actually, those are still required standards, they just come after some concept development) and instead requires a "new" approach (there is no new required approach, but instead multiple approaches as needed by the teacher and students).
