Aaron Sorkin's new drama, Newsroom, turned out to be absolutely riveting with many dramatic moments in its 10 episode run. Among scenes where the lead character Will McAvoy, played ably by Jeff Daniels, delivers a scathing answer to a college girl's question asking if America was the greatest country in world to the moment where President Obama declares Bin Laden's death, this series has managed to deliver quality entertainment to its viewers.
However, the standout moment appears in episode 4 when news breaks out that a Congresswoman called Gabrielle Giffords was shot in Arizona and many media outlets report that she has died based on rumours. However, ACN, the newschannel where Newsroom is set, maintains its integrity and waits for confirmation of her death, because “It’s a person. A doctor pronounces her dead, not the news.”
