Now we get it! Now we can finally understand what goes on inside liberal hollywood heads when they hear the words, "republican," "tea party," and
"conservative." If you didn't already know The Newsroom is a new show from HBO and Aaron Sorkin starring Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterson.
The Newsroom released a viral video on the internet with their fictional News Anchor going off script and ballistic claiming that "America is not the
greatest country in the world anymore." As with the Youtube video McAvoy becomes a celebrity overnight and goes off into hiding while most of his
staff is fired or quits. The crappy staff that remains because they either couldn't find a job or were too stuck up to go anywhere else, decide to
create an unscripted news show, not following the establishment model and covering the stories they want. Sounds good right?
They may be onto something as The NewsRoom Clip of fiction anchor Will Mcavoy got nearly 5 Million Youtube hits once you count all the video clips of
that one 3 min segment. This is not bashing Sorkin's work as its usually pretty fast paced and unemotional with one dimensional characters (look no
farther than The Social Network).
It seems during every scene NewsRoom finds some way to hammer the tea party and other characters hammer republicans. Somehow forgetting that the tea
party does not = all republicans. Yet, a lot of the moderate republican I have met are exactly like Will Mcavoy the gun hating, womanizer who has a
mission to bash every tea party person that comes on his show.
Newsbusters does writeups about The Newsroom if you want to take a look at some of their criticisms.
All of this actually doesn't bother me. It's quite entertaining to watch if you are not an ideologue and know that everything they are talking about
is fake! It's not how the news operates, it's not how normal people speak to each other, a republican would never make a black gay man cry on live TV
The show is really funny if you are a republican, but I do have one caution to add. Through the last half of the show, they apparently forget about
their own consciences and their new format. They apparently need to cover Casey Anthony because nobody is watching news about anything else and they
lost half their viewers. (I was cheering silently) Whatever happened to the new show format? It was thrown out the window because Jeff Daniels'
character wants to "Change the way debates are done," by hosting a Republican Primary Debate. They need to show the GOP that they are a reputable news
Now, I don't know what they are planning to do for the debate and by all signs and accounts its looking like they are saving that for the finale. I
may not watch it, because I respect what my fellow Tea Party members have to say, even if I don't agree with all of them. You know its going to a be a
republican bashing extravaganza.
I've had some die hard republicans and conservatives tell me that they called their cable or satellite company to get rid of HBO but Bill Maher is
there too so he may have something to do with it. If you watch it you would find it funny. I do, but yet, its hard to piss me off. How far do the
liberals need to go? There is some shinning hope though. The Koch Brothers have to do business with the CEO of the company that owns ACN and the CEO
is now in deep SH*t for phone hacking her own company. She tells them to tone it down otherwise Mcavoy is fired.
Not to mention that there is this annoying but hot asian mid-day anchor who wants to talk about economics and only uses government bailouts as the
only way to save the world!!!!
So be warned if you are watching NewsRoom. Don't be fooled by the liberal media machine. All republicans are not idiots or act like those portrayed on
the fake news show
