Wow, and I thought Glen Beck was terrible. Why cant there ever be a middle of the road type of news? It is either super conservative, or super liberal. In this case this show paints the super liberal as the correct way. The show pulls little snip-its from what republicans have said and post it as their hard core beliefs out of contexts. I watched Glen Beck one time in my life, and after he did that once, I never watched it again. I guess the mantra for this show is if you cant beat the conspiracy nuts, you join them on the opposite side. It makes me sick to think that kids these days think that this is how news should be. I do think that it is really funny tho that they are painting that tea party people as kitten killing racists.

This show is just... great. One of my new favorites. It's not perfect, but it certainly has it's perfect moments. As for the cast, they're all quite good and some achieve stellar status.

It was an excellent show. I like the characters, already I'm hooked. I'm not going to politicize it to much. After all it is a story about the news. And it does not really matter which party we associate ourselves with. We choose the news that we receive. Wether we get it from MSNBC,FOXNEWS or dare I say Bill O'Reilly, John Stewart. We all know that straight facts are not presented to us anymore. This show is about how things could be, how we wished they still were. How we hope things are getting run behind the scenes.(That's what i got from it anyways) So yeah i did kinda lose myself there for a little while. I was cheering for them to do the right thing. To run the story, To not back off from the corporate spin doctors. To assign responsibility. We very rarely see that cut and dry nowadays. But yea it is just a show. And like most shows it is supposed to entertain. So for that purpose, cheers!!! Good job. I was more than engaged and entertained.

God I can't get enough of this show. I rewatch episodes over and over because sometimes there's little nuances and bits you miss. Or at least I do haha. And Aaron Sorkin's writing is top notch. Love Sam Waterston as Charlie. I grew up with him on Law and order and now when you watch him as this kind of macho, alcoholic, media mogul he takes on a completely different side of himself. And besides Jeff Daniels he's my favourite. Also, who'd have thought Dev Patel from slumdog would actually be a decent actor?! I like him on this show. Great cast, great writing. My new favourite show since Suits.

Major news agencies don't even have investigative journalists on staff anymore, at least this show hires them. We can all handle the truth.

The Newsroom has a wit, sophistication and manic energy.... But at its worst a couple of the episodes chokes on its own sanctimony. Overall, I love it.

As per usual, HBO doesn't miss on writing, production, casting, etc etc. Great show, but they kind of lost their mark on bipartisanship and playing both sides of the plate and went off on anti-rightwing trip, which I don't technically care about, but it gets old especially since that's just about what everyone does. Great show though, will continue to watch.

I felt like I was watching Keith Olbermann especially the 4th episode. Keith is the best newscaster in our era.

I know that "Breaking Bad" is back (amazing) - but after 4 episodes, I can say that this is the best show on Sunday nights. I might have a certain political bias - but this is magnificent.

Any show that Tea Baggers hate must be a wonderful. Even before the show aired on Sunday night, Those Tea Baggers had already spent numerous amount of articles trashing the show. Wonderful. Those tea baggers have no taste anyway. Wonderful show. Thank you again Mr. Sorkin.

Just saw Season 3 Episode 1, and I came here to make a comment, but then I realized, no matter what I say, positive or negative, I'm going to lose karma, so what's the point? Just not going to do it. Oh damn, just saying this is going to lose me karma, isn't it? Sigh. Can't win for losing.
