The MOST IMPORTANT hour on television this year!, 15 July 2012
Author: teach172-1 from United States

The Newsroom takes on the TRUTH about the Tea Party and how little they know about anything! They want to abolish the 14th Amendment, they want to change the rules, they don't want to spend a penny - all this without even knowing their REAL responsibilities as Congressmen! This episode is a MUST SEE for any Republican who has just Z"followed the crowd" in their hatred for the current President. We cannot put our government in their hands! The interview of the very conservative Congressman who voted to "compromise with a Democrat and lost his primary, the fact that Sen. Lee from Utah went to the right of Bob Bennet by asking for the repeal of the 14th Amendment - the facts are presented as FACTS. Yet, there is still the melodrama and love triangles of a typical TV show. Finally, the ironic depiction of Jane Fonda as the president of the news company her former husband (Ted Turner - CNN) founded is hilarious!
