What about the male who is a generic mouthpiece. Or the male who says he. An produce a news show, while putting on a ratings show. Why ate you handpicking the negative female storylines whole ignoring the positive ones?
I am fairly confused about the misogynistic spin that has been given. You see, if all women on the show were being portrayed as exact same personalities then I would agree. However, it is impossible to deny that there are some women out there who attract drama. The two main women portray that. Olivia Munn's character is fairly about her wits. Also, I would say it is courageous to celebrate doing your job well. No matter how tragic the scenario, a newsperson's job is to report the news. When they do it better than everyone else, they should celebrate. They aren't celebrating the story itself but, the fact that they got it right.
When the other critics start writing positive things about the show, you will follow in line. Please don't write a review based on what you think other critics will say.
Why shouldn't a news story educate a person????
Why weren't they the better news because they didn't report Giffords was dead when everyone else did?????
Just because it's fiction?????????????
I believe this was the best episode so far.........Can't wait to see the fireworks with Will and Leona!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will give you that some of the women characters are portrayed as weak and unbalanced(Maggie and at times Mackenzie).......Maybe if Maggie gets with Jim that may change.............
I couldn't disagree more, the point of television is to entertain it's users and engulf us into a fantasy world where we can relate to the characters and escape our day to day lives. Unfortunately, you'd rather criticize someone for not writing like you expect instead of writing what the vast public enjoys to watch. Stop thinking sorkin this and sorkin that and maybe watch the episode again from an open minded point of view. I bet you are entertained if you try a little harder to listen, follow and hopefully with a dictionary handy understand the detailed and witty dialogue.
completely disagree! a perfect snapshot of life in the news.
I agree wholeheartedly Matt, it felt like I was watching a Prime time drama, not HBO. The manipulative feeling montage with Coldplay underneath definitely had me rolling my eyes. Here's hoping "Newsroom" veers in a less contrived direction, but unlikely.
