    The Newsroom: Forever and Ever, Amen

    "Amen" was as engrossing an episode of The Newsroom as we've seen yet.

  • Episode Summary

    EDIT

    Two uprisings occur simultaneously and the news crew does their best to report on both equally. First, the ousting of President Mubarak in Egypt, then unrest in Wisconsin in response to the governor's call for budget cuts.
