Actor Jeff Daniels is lecturing the racist pro-Trump "mob" is devaluing decency and honesty. It’s a little rich when the Hollywood Left itself as the guardian of decency and respect and honesty.

November 24th, 2014 12:45 PM
It looks as if this final season of The Newsroom might end with total apocalypse.

August 23rd, 2013 4:51 PM
NewsBusters has chronicled for years the perilously liberal views of television producer Aaron Sorkin.

Flashback: HBO Newsroom’s Sanctimonious Tea Party as the Taliban Ran
July 14th, 2013 7:55 PM
HBO’s The Newsroom debuts its second season tonight (Sunday) at 10 PM EDT/PDT. The preachy and sanctimonious left-wing dialogue from creator/writer Aaron Sorkin often came across as unintentional near-parody of MSNBC’s old Countdown with Keith Olbermann, none more so than in the self-righteous commentary delivered by anchor “Will McAvoy,” played by Jeff Daniels, in the…

October 7th, 2012 12:40 PM
One of the reasons why liberals were so shocked by President Obama's disastrous performance in last Wednesday's presidential debate is that it ran completely counter to what they expected based on one of their most important fictional experiences.

August 27th, 2012 3:43 PM
Despite mediocre ratings and a multitude of unenthusiastic reviews, HBO renewed The Newsroom for a second season after its first two episodes.

Sorkin's 'Newsroom' Attacks Women, Gay Republicans
July 30th, 2012 12:05 PM
Last night's episode of Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom was hilariously titled, "Bullies." Unfortunately for HBO, the humor was due to the program's seemingly endless hypocrisy and not because there was anything remotely funny in the dialogue of the episode itself.
Lauded as a ground-breaking show by much of the liberal media, The Newsroom really jumped the shark this week…
