    It is no surprise to me that the Fourth Estate has some negative remarks about The Newsroom. Of course they are defensive because they don't want anyone telling them how pathetic the reporting has been and prefer business as usual.

    Sorkin is a brilliant scriptwriter, and the cast are doing an amazing acting job with the script that is so fast-paced.  I'm addicted.  I hope more people will become fans of this show, too.

    There's just enough soap with the characters to keep the "reality show" viewers watching, so none of that bothers me.  Sorkin didn't want it to be so dry that people would become too saturated with pure journalism.  

    Nice diary!  Thanks!
