The Newsroom

A drama set at a fictional cable-news network re-creates actual events to show how they're covered by "News Night" anchor Will McAvoy and his staff.

Season 1, Episode 3 112th Congress

First Aired: July 8, 2012

Will's apology for the lack of integrity in newscasts sets off constant critiques of the Tea Party before the November 2010 midterm elections, but draws the ire of network executives and Atlantis World Media CEO Leona Lansing. Meanwhile, Don confronts Elliot about his analytical skills; Jim helps Maggie during a panic attack; and Mac is unnerved by Will's endless parade of romantic conquests.
