Storyline

April, 2011: Will has insomnia and drops by a psychiatrist's office for a prescription. The doc, the son of a man Will consulted four years before, invites Will to sit: their session becomes flashbacks of the previous week. The Japanese may be downplaying the danger at Fukushima, Will presses Sloane to ask tougher follow-up questions, Mackenzie directs Jim and Maggie to do opposition research on Will (so Charlie can anticipate the next gossip attack), Will insists viewers' Internet comments no longer be anonymous and he receives a threat on his life, and Rick Santorum explores running for President. An engagement ring appears, a gay man interviewed. Who are the bullies? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Love Newsroom
30 July 2012 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I love Newsroom and Bullies made me LOL (many times). I watch the new episodes on Sunday and then watch the same episode whenever I can during the week. What else is there to watch? Reruns of Newsroom are better than anything on network TV. What other show even mentions the unrest in Egypt or the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords or the nuclear meltdown in Japan.

I have seen some criticism of the show. It is not a documentary. It is not meant to fix everything wrong with the media. It is a drama with wonderful, quirky characters, talented actors, intelligent writing and HILARIOUS moments.

Newsroom is awesome entertainment.
