Storyline

New Year's Eve, 2010: Don encourages Jim to hang out with Maggie's roommate; Maggie objects. Will, in a tuxedo, decides to be sociable at the station's party, chatting up a visiting columnist.

A similar event and newspaper report happen a couple days later. What's going on? Then, on Saturday, January 8, by a fluke, everyone's at the station when a major story breaks. Will everyone keep their heads? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

[about Obama's visit to India and the absurdly exaggerated figure of the cost]
Will McAvoy: In spite of there being no source for this information, to say nothing of the absurdity of the figure, Fox News grabs the baton.
Glenn Beck: So he's travelling with 34 warships, an entourage-
[footage stops]
Will McAvoy: Oh yeah, and he added 34 warships. Or, 14% of the U.S. Navy.

I'll try to fix you review -7-16-12
16 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sorokin has a WIDE breadth of materials to work with here. The scummy media droids have left real and rational news professionals materials in piles on the floor just to pick and go bang a Pulitzer out once or twice a week! The neo-nut media has squandered our journalistic future, and Sorokin knows this. The episodes could go in a thousand different directions but seem to be trending toward something that makes sense. The alleged 'real critics' over at acid baths like Variety think this is Sorokin on drugs... I've got a different vision.

Good solid cast -wonderful story material -all the intrigue of any fortune 100 tech company boardroom - and disjunction of all pee-party, Beck permanently labeled as a criminal liar, and disdain for ever thing trivial, backwards looking, and prejudiced in any form...

I've it high hopes for Sorokin here. The clowns at Variety WILL eat their shorts on this one?
