Critics Hammer Aaron Sorkin's Newsroom: 'So Naive it's Cynical'

via 10 vicious reviews of 'The Newsroom' - Patrick Gavin - POLITICO.com.

The critics have weighed in on Aaron Sorkin’s new drama, “The Newsroom,” starring Jeff Daniels as a news anchor struggling to put together a successful news program despite the obligatory pressures and obstacles.

The consensus? It’s not Sorkin’s finest work.

Here are the 10 harshest reviews of “Newsroom,” which debuts Sunday on HBO:

1. “‘The Newsroom’ had me contemplating that which is so feared in my industry: changing the channel. And I was watching it on DVD.” — ABC’s Jake Tapper, The New Republic

2. “…an exponentially tedious undertaking for the viewer…” — Hank Stuever, Washington Post

3. “It’s so naive it’s cynical.” — Emily Nussbaum, New Yorker

4. “…it all feels over-overwrought.” — Joanne Ostrow, Denver Post
