    'The Newsroom' Episode 3 Review and Recap: The Morning After 'The 112th Congress,' a Silent Waiting Game Erupts

    In a canny bit of Sorkin script engineering, the "News Night" team tackles Tea Party politics for six straight months with nary a peep from the 44th floor. But as with Jane Fonda's silent lioness Leona Lansing, a period of quiet comes before the roar.
