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. He objects to something she ways, she tosses her glass of Champagne in his face, and a couple days later, a local gossip column accuses him of groping her. 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

Reese Lansing: Every second you're not current a thousand people are changing the channel to the guy who is. That's the business you're in. MSNBC, FOX and CNN all say she's dead. Don, tell him.
Don Keefer: It's a person. A doctor pronounces her dead, not the news.

good epi
16 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Thank F for this show by Phillip George Persaud. finally a show has been created by greatness by sorkin, this is has the true intention of making a great and individual TV show. i know some people would call me a hippo because i work at a bar to stand and looking pretty but this show isn't like all the rest of the BS that out with vampires and wolf and teenage love story about taking off their shirts and getting naked. this show is about the smart and underrated people in the news industry, and making news, it reminds me of the days on fox new and ITN or ITV where Sir Trevor Mcdonald used to report news about life and problems in the world, and not about which celeb did what. So behalf of all the people who understand a good thing thank you.. signing out
