Where to Watch the First Episode of 'The Newsroom' for Free Online

Ladies and gentleman, Aaron Sorkin is back!  Something of a mix between his previous television series “Sports Night’ and “The West Wing,” “The Newsroom” shows off Sorkin’s mile-a-minute dialogue in the context of a contemporary television news room.  Of course, the mess that is cable news is the object of Sorkin’s ire, and as our own Alison Willmore put it, the show is classic Sorkin…and that’s both a good and bad thing.

In the show Jeff Daniels plays the anchor dealing with the crazy state of 21st century news, “Law and Order” star Sam Waterson represents the old guard, and the cast is rounded out by the likes of Dev Patel, Olivia Munn and Alison Pill.

HBO has made the series’ pilot “We Just Decided To” available to view for free on the HBO websiteDailyMotion and YouTube
