The Newsroom is Aaron Sorkin’s latest tale of the behind the scenes at a TV show. He’s attempted it twice before, once with the brilliant Sports Night, then again with the much maligned Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. The Newsroom centers on a popular news anchor who during a Q&A session at a college goes on a rant about why America isn’t living up to it’s potential. Following the fallout his ex-girlfriend is brought on to produce his show in a radically different way, covering news that people should be hearing instead of the unimportant popular stuff. Along the way the show makes a lot of enemies and has to fight a lot of battles to bring the news to the air.
