OVERRATED: Aaron Sorkin, in interviews
Though the reviews for "The Newsroom" have been unfavorable, Sorkin still is one of television's most brilliant writers, and odds are his new HBO show will still feature no shortage of goose bump-raising lines. Still, he'd be a lot easier to root for if another writer could put words in his mouth every now and then because his anti-Internet rants have started sounding anti-modernity — and the sooner he lays off his condescending tone the better.
