There aren't enough words. Except in the world of Aaron Sorkin, where there are always enough, maybe too many, as the Emmy- and Oscar-winning maestro of the hyper-verbal aria (The West Wing, Sports Night, The Social Network) aims his sights back on TV with the exhilarating, exasperating and often sensationally entertaining The Newsroom.

Moderated by TV Guide Magazine editor-in-chief Debra Birnbaum, the panel featured a lively Q&A session and clips of upcoming episodes...
