Rebecca Halliday: When I first walked into ACN, I didn’t know what to think. I’d worked with painters and law-and-order types, not newsmen. My friends warned me that the NewsNight crew was a bunch of angry, repressed misanthropes, using the news as a way to distract themselves from their existential angst. But when I first got there, nobody was screaming. I was actually a little disappointed when nobody shouted about their personal lives in the middle of the newsroom for all to hear.
