“The Newsroom”

“”The Newsroom” is a new series on one of the cable channels.   It’s a title that I and others have used for some of our writings.   I was curiious to see how close the drama comes to reality.  There are elements of truth in the first episode, but the drama  serves the first commandment… first.   It entertains.   One of the tests for entertaining story telling:  could it be true?   The story told in the first segment of “The Newsroom” could be true, but not in the WSB-Television Newsroom.   Still, I’ll keep watching because it’s entertaining.   After all, that’s what the creators of “The Newsroom” want.

    When I was growing up in the 1950’s, I believe Newsroom was the title of WSB’s 11:00pm news broadcast.
