    A 'Newsroom' Wishlist: Five Things We'd Love to See Aaron Sorkin's Drama Do In Its Next Season

    "The Newsroom" closed out its first season this past Sunday the way it began, with an episode -- "The Greater Fool" -- that brought back series premiere director Greg Mottola and showed off the precise mix of fiery idealism, incontestible santimoniousness and maddening ...

    THE NEWSROOM RECAP 5: AMEN

    It’s amazing that a man, and the show that celebrates him, can recognize any news when they spot it, given how much time Will and "The Newsroom" spend in a self-regarding set of funhouse mirrors that seem to reflect only the most flattering version of Will back to him.

    THE NEWSROOM RECAP 4: I'LL TRY TO FIX YOU

    One of the reasons I wish "The Newsroom" spent more time following its characters as they report stories is that there’s a thesis floating through the show about what happens when people apply the methods they use in journalism to their personal lives.

    THE NEWSROOM RECAP 3: THE 112TH CONGRESS

    As much as I believe Aaron Sorkin is, to some extent, correct about the brokenness of our news system, as I’ve watched "The Newsroom," I’m finding myself increasingly sympathetic with the people he’s angry at, the ones who knuckle under to commercial pressure and the terms of their contracts as Will...

    THE NEWSROOM RECAP 1: WE JUST DECIDED TO

    HBO’s been trying to sell "The Newsroom" to audiences on the strength of its opening scene, when Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels), a bland and personable cable news anchor trapped in his own private hell somewhere between a shout-y liberal and a conservative, snaps and delivers a rant about American great...

    Review: While Hopelessly Drunk On The Ideals Of Bygone Journalism, ‘The Newsroom’ Is Still An Engaging Broadcast

    The longer Aaron Sorkin’s deeply-nostalgic-for-the-golden-age-of-news show “The Newsroom” goes on for, the more improbable the workplace drama (and dramedy), set at a fictional cable-news show, becomes. A complacent and apathetic news anchor known as the MOR Jay Leno of news anchor suddenly explodes...

    Aaron Sorkin Moves 'The Newsroom' To Fairyland

    Aaron Sorkin has always had a huge, corn-fed Capraesque streak, and I don’t mean that as a compliment.  Even in his own day, Capra’s Americana was more willful than trenchant, but at least it suited its Greatest Generation era. Sorkin’s high-blown patriotic speeches, tran...
