    comment threads, but, for those who've missed it, here's the link to The Newsroom, Episode 1, which HBO posted to YouTube:

    This latest offering from Sorkin is, in my view, not up to the standards of The West Wing, but it's still worth viewing.

    The Newsroom
    has been widely panned by news media "professionals," and some of that criticism is valid - the characters are unrealistically witty and articulate, and stereotypes abound.

    That having been said, I still strongly recommend the show, if, for no other reason, it might educate younger viewers about what news reporting could be, should be, and was (to varying degrees) in the past.
