TN fan

I'm a huge fan of the show. I respect that you do not like the show, however a couple comments in regards to "do as I say not as I do":

There's a difference between refusing to answer a question and answering with lies and bullshit or essentially answering the question you (one) wished had been asked.

I don't know anything about these firings but I assume you mean in real life. Unless he's protecting other people's privacy, there's likely something fishy about Sorkin refusing to answer a question. The implication is that Sorkin is distoring/hiding information in regards to the staff, production, writing, of the TV show the Newsroom.

When members of the Government (or other people in charge of people's money or lives) answer questions with lies or bullshit the implications of the information that is being withheld has an impact on the lives of many people. As far as I'm concerned, most of the people interviewed by Will Mcavoy on The Newsroom are asked relatively simply and reasonable questions that could often be answered with a yes or no. More importantly though, they have a responsibility and duty to answer the questions being asked.

I don't know if Aaron Sorkin is a good person or not. Maybe is a total asshole. Maybe he's a saint. You dont need to like Matt Stone and Trey Parker to think South Park is brilliant. Maybe Picasso was a total dick.

I realize by the way how thrilled Sorkin would be to find out fans of his show know the lyrics to Kyle's mom is a big fat bitch.
