    The Newsroom "The Blackout Part II" Review: Two Legs at a Time

    There have been some very good episodes of this show, and there have also been some pretty heinous ones. This was one of the latter.

  • Episode Summary

    The power outage clarifies Mac's thoughts about the way they're going about achieving their goal for the debate. Neal poses as an internet troll, baiting Sloan's fans with inaccurate posts. Charlie asks Jim to vet his NSA source. Lisa's interview with Will about Casey Anthony goes horribly wrong, and the staff's sample mock debate for the Republican Party's representatives does not go as planned.
