    'Newsroom' Review and Recap 2.7: The Slap (SPOILERS)

    When the season began, with talk of a lawsuit and of the need to immediately retract a huge story -- a claim that U.S. troops had committed a war crime by using sarin gas on civilians -- it appeared that institutional bias was indeed likely to be a culprit, the slant view of liberal journalists who ...

    Before the first episode of "The Newsroom" aired, expectations were sky high for one reason: Aaron Sorkin. This was going to be the new show from the mind behind "The West Wing" and Oscar-winner who penned "The Social Network," and moreover, it was going to tackle the thorny world of cable news. But...
