Levi Russell on The Daily Caller: ‘Newsroom’ misrepresents Americans for Prosperity
For the past two weeks, Americans for Prosperity and the Koch brothers have been a featured theme on HBO’s “The Newsroom,” a new series created by Aaron Sorkin and loosely based on Keith Olbermann’s career at MSNBC.
Let’s just hope that viewers of “The Newsroom” recognize the show not for how it’s packaged, but for what it really is — a source of entertainment that occasionally dabbles in reality.
“The Newsroom” bills itself as a gritty, true-to-life depiction of a real cable-news program covering actual news stories. The problem is, the show ends up taking frequent detours from reality to journey through the fantasy land of Sorkin’s imagination.
