Aaron Sorkin’s “The Newsroom” Debuts

Aaron Sorkin, writer of “The West Wing” and “The Social Network” has a new HBO series that deserves a watch.  The premiere debuted Sunday night and it was powerful television.

Check out this YouTube of the opening scene.

The critics haven’t been kind to it but it goes after Liberals and Conservatives fairly.  And it does show how a story comes together.  I certainly hope subsequent episodes were as good as the first one.

    Conservatives should watch the program.
    Conservatives, – don’t be offended by the mocking of the Christian belief in angles; the “Newsman” is just being “Politically Correct” and both Bible and Qur’an illiterate.

    The Angle Gabriel in Islam

    “Main article: Gabriel in Islam
    Gabriel (Jibra’il) is believed by Muslims to have been the angel who revealed the Qur’an to the prophet Muhammad,[18][19]”

    “In Muslim tradition, Gabriel occupies the role of one of the primary archangels and all historical commentaries build upon Gabriel’s role as the transmitter of the Qur’an.[20] Exegesis narrates that Muhammad saw Gabriel in his full angelic splendor only twice, the first being when he received his first revelation.[21]”

    If there are no angles then there is no “Angle Gabriel” if no “Angle Gabriel” then where did the Qur’an come from? Someone please contact C.A.I.R. (Council on American-Islamic Relations).

    I don’t believe in angles either. I mean how many sides can they have at what degree? But I hear ArchAngles are good on bridges

    I’m pretty sure Lauten meant to write “Angels” not “Angles.” The Los Angeles Angles of Anaheim or the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
