    “The Newsroom” Debuts

    By kyle | June 24, 2012

    In my Sunday column, a look at Aaron Sorkin’s new HBO show “The Newsroom.” Yes, I devote a lot of space to destroying one of his contentions, but I could have gone on in the same way for thousands of words. (Jonah Goldberg’s “The Tyranny of Cliches,” for instance, has already debunked a lot of this stuff.) Alas, the Post is not going to print a special supplement for my views on Aaron Sorkin.
