The Newsroom

In the show The Newsroom is centered on Will McAvoy, who has to deal with the changes that are being made to his news show called “News Night.” The show starts off with Will criticizing America because of all the things that are wrong with it and then he states all the reasons why America used to be the best country in the world. His speech can tell you what his views are going to be in the show, which is a bit to the left. The reset of the show is mostly drama about what will happen to Will’s show. You find out who are loyal to Will and who decides to leave Will for the other show. I think the show is exaggerated a bit on the dram because it would attract more viewers. I wondered how Will would be so unaware that his show is being completely changed and how he didn’t know that almost all his co-workers were leaving him. There is hostility between Will and his former lover MacKenzie McHale because she will be the new executive producer. Will’s show starts off with the gulf spill. The new crew was able to prove themselves by being able to get ahead of everyone else on reporting the story. From watching the scene on the spill, I learned that sources are very important when you want to report a story. In the show they relied heavily on the topic turning to red, which signifies that it is very important news. I think the crew now learned to not rely on it so much.
