Synopsis: A news anchor has found a safe niche with his cable show, "News Night", but his life is stirred up when he is forced to work with a new team of colleagues.
In an episode that started with the ACN crew manipulating the FBI, and ended with Will McAvoy being handed a subpoena, it's the show's writers who proved most problematic for "The Newsroom."
No series creator in the history of television has more revered the medium in theory and more despised it in practice than Aaron Sorkin. In "Run," however, the conclusion of the argument is anything but foregone.
"The Newsroom" amped up the intensity as it never has before, even if it couldn't avoid another slip-up with its least compelling character.
