A excellent portrayal of what it takes to bring truth in reporting the news to air ! When should a a news program report what may or may not be the facts on am incident that occurs , and the responsibility for airing and reporting , what has actually & factually occurred: not just the desire to be the first to broadcast what may or may not be the true stories factual account of the event! Incredible performances by a excellent cast portraying the Newsroom crew! Jeff Daniels at his best but all are just top notch !

Best Drama ever!!!
This fast paced rhythmic drama should only be viewed without interruption, it's like viewing a mini movie, worth savoring every moment.
Unfortunately this is the last season, to bad we have to wait for the last few episodes.
I read a comment recently that sums up the impact this show has, it simply said, "The Newsroom" should be set as a minimum standard to be met, by other programs.

The Newsroom is a political drama about the inner/outer going of the news and the veil in front the American people. The writing is witty and show touches topics that are known as taboo or restricted by common television shows. Mostly though the show revolves around what actually happens when your watching the news in the backroom of the studio.

Wills first speech is one of the most truthful and daring pieces of writing I have ever heard on television.

I was introduced to this show by a clip floating around Facebook of Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) making a speech about how America is no longer the greatest country. I tuned in and was not disappointed. This has got to be one of the most intelligent shows on tv and for the life of me I can not understand why they ended after only three seasons.

The Newsroom is one of those shows that gets you hooked immediately. There are no bad guys. Everybody is flawed but really great at the same time. It beautifully captures the behind-the-camera drama that occurs in a newsroom coupled with a heart melting love story and additional comedy!

personally i was never one to be interested in thinking shows, or anything having to do with current affairs or politics- if i watch tv, i want it to be light lol. BUT with that being said, i was recommended this show by a friend and i must say it had be glued. they were able to pull me someone who's not usually into this genre into keeping up with the show until the end. They presented the stories in a very unique way which made it interesting to watch!

This needs to go on a list of SHOWS THAT ENDED TOO SOON. The writing was excellent. Of course it helps that a person who considered himself Conservative can still be sane and not pander to the idea of AMERICAN EXEPTIONALISM and FUNDAMENTALIST religious nonscience. The ethics for our news programs seem to be slipping so far that the best news sources on TV today are on COMEDY CENTRAL, but this was another way to look back into the past and see some not quite current events after history has had a chance to form a more realistic opinion.

Great series, but the first season is by far the best.
