“The Newsroom”

Earlier, I posted my reaction to a new HBO program, “The Newsroom”.  It’s based on what  supposedly goes on in a cable-based news operation.  HBO now has aired 3 one-hour segments of the show.   The more I watch the drama, the more entertaining it becomes.  However, the writers of  “The Newsroom” seem to be pushing a single political point of view. I want to believe that will change.   One other thing:  the introduction each week includes video of Ed Murrow, Walter Cronkite and Chet Huntley.  David Brinkley was Huntley’s partner for many years on the Huntly-Brinkley report.  I’m wondering if the Brinkley family wouldn’t give “The Newsroom” permission to use his image.
