Sorkin hired conservative media consultants for the second season to help him represent "every part of the ideological spectrum," thus giving the show "a political perspective that I don't have. In Season 1 each episode is built around a major news event from the recent past, such as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill or the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
This acts as a background for the interpersonal drama, as well as providing a sense of familiarity, as the audience is likely to know the context and so not require too much explanation of events.
Sorkin has said the news events on the show "will always be real", which, for him, "became a kind of creative gift. For one thing, the audience knows more than the characters do, which is kind of fun. And it gives me the chance to have the characters be smarter than we were.
The second season features a story arc in which the News Night team has reported, and been forced to retract, a false news story about the United States Marine Corps using Sarin gas during the war in Afghanistan in The third season tackles two controversial topics in news reporting.
The first is the subject of citizen journalism , and the season begins with the Boston Marathon bombings and its subsequent investigation, which was quite significantly affected by the reports of social media users. The other major topic is whistleblowing, explored when major character Neal Sampat is contacted by an anonymous source, who leaks details of the US government's complicity in an atrocity in an African state. This leads to a clash between Will and the FBI, resulting in Will's spending time in jail for refusing to name Neal's source and being held in contempt.
The whistleblowing storyline takes place in parallel to the Edward Snowden disclosures in It was watched by 2. The show aired simultaneously on HBO Canada. Critical reaction to the series in its first season was mixed. On Metacritic , the first season scored 57 out of , based on 31 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".
The site's critical consensus reads, "Though it sports good intentions and benefits from moments of stellar dialogue and a talented cast, The Newsroom may feel too preachy, self satisfied, and cynical to appeal to a wide range of viewers.
Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter writes that how viewers respond to the show "has everything to do with whether you like his style. Sorkin is always true to himself and doesn't try to cover his tendencies or be embarrassed by them". The Newsroom has a wit, sophistication and manic energy But at its worst, the show chokes on its own sanctimony".
Reviews by newscasters have been mixed as well. The second season received generally favorable reviews. It has a score of 66 out of , based on 26 critics, from review aggregation website Metacritic. The site's critical consensus reads, "Thanks to focused storytelling and a more restrained tone, The Newsroom finds surer footing in its second season, even if it still occasionally succumbs to Aaron Sorkin's most indulgent whims.
In an early review of season 2, Verne Gay of Newsday called it: The third and final season received positive reviews. On Metacritic, it has a score of 63 out of , based on 16 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews". The site's consensus reads, "With an energetic new arc and deeper character development, The Newsroom finds itself rejuvenated in its third season—even if it still occasionally serves as a soapbox for creator Aaron Sorkin.

Should it be closed after Season 3? West Wing ran for 7 seasons and the Newsroom is just as wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aaron Sorkin is a creative genious! The Newsroom is by far the best thing on TV.
Love, love, love the Newsroom!!! The writing and acting are excellent. Please keep it going. The Newsroom is one of the best series of this genre ever. The characters and story lines are excellent as is the acting and overall production. This is one show which should run for a long time instead of being cancelled after only three seasons. It is the BEST show on cable. Oh, and the cast is great as well. Agreed with all of the above comments.
Finally a good show shows up and they cancel it. There is so much garbage out there and this is the one that goes. Please give us more to watch! Maybe this great show is above the average viewer! NOt enough blood and violence, but great on the brain!
HBO stand up for this provitive show!!!!! Please work out what ever it is that is keeping this show from continuing past season 3. There must bs some kind of disagreement between the powers that be because really there is no reason to shut this down. The show is incedibly written, well acted, and has a strong viewership. So tell me, why is it ending? What is great about this show is it gives us what we would all like from our news. But perhaps that is the problem.
This is one show That I have said to one and all that it is by far one of the best new shows around. Everyone who has watched it agrees. How do we keep this show going. It is the most truthful look at the politics of today. What forces are behind the cancelation? Is it stepping on the toes of the rich and powerful elite class?????
Please do not cancel the News Room. It is the only show on HBO that I watch. This is the best show on TV. This show has everything you could want, incredible dialogue, exceptional acting, sophisticated adult content.
So what is HBO thinking? Please find a way to continue this show. There is so little of quality on regular network TV and we depend on writers such as Aaron Sorkin to give us something intellectual for entertainment on the small screen.
Please make it happen. It is one of the very few shows that actually contain intellect. This is a sad world where the Kardashians live on and Newsroom only last 3 seasons, go figure.
That is why the third season will have six episodes and then be finished. Newsroom is the best show on television! It just goes to show you the low information viewers idiots that watch garbage like the Bachelor etc and the other hideous reality tv shows, are the demographics that drive what is on tv these days. Very foolish decision to cancel this show. I hardly watch TV. The Newsroom is so well written and intelligent and challenging.
How sad that we viewers cannot be challenged anymore? Much we only have gruesome procedural shows or reality shows? I am sad to see The Newsroom go! This show has made me laugh and cry but ultimately brings another perspective to actual current events. The capture of Osama Bin Laden is my favorite episode. This is the only show I would stay up to watch live, watching a recording was just not an option even with my work day starting at 6: I will not begin to know why a program of this caliber would be cancelled.
Hey, Netflix, Yahoo please come to the rescue.
