I’m excited to write about this one. The newsroom is not a brand new series, it’s fairly young though. It premiered in 2012 and has enjoyed two mostly successful seasons so far. I’ve heard a lot about this show but never got the opportunity to watch it because I lacked HBO at the time. I’ve been very familiar with what most consider it’s most potent scene. A scene presented to the audience within the first 10 minutes of the pilot. This tirade of a speech made my list of Top 8 TV monologues .
Heads up, the embedded link isn’t going to work on the page, every High Quality video of this scene I find doesn’t allow embedded to work. Why they made this scene so un sharable is beyond me, but you should still take a moment to head over to Youtube and give it a view.
