Where Will Aaron Sorkin Point His Misguided Outrage in the Final Season of 'The Newsroom'?

Going into the third and final season of Aaron Sorkin’s much-improved HBO series, The Newsroom, Sorkin may run the risks of dashing some of the goodwill he built up with critics last season by apparently returning to a well that got him nowhere in the first season: Taking shots at social media.

His target, the Boston Marathon Bombing, is actually ripe for that kind of criticism, given the chaotic nature of that story, where social media (and Reddit) played both a vital and destructive role in the telling of that news story. But I worry, especially in light of Jeff Daniels’ over-the-top antics in the trailer, that Sorkin may be getting way back up on his high horse.

Did he say “moral imperative”? Come on Sorkin. Dial it down, bro. Dial it down.

The final season of The Newsroom, which jumps ahead five months from where the second season left off, will premiere on HBO Sunday, Nov. 9 at 9 p.m.
