The Newsroom: “Episode 3” Many Montages, Jane Fonda F-Bombs — Plus, a Note on Sexism

Before we get started on this week's recap of HBO's great new series The Newsroom, we feel the need to talk about the accusations of sexism thrown around after the second episode last week. Usefully, Britain's The Guardian gathered together multiple critiques of creator Aaron Sorkin's work (most of them scathing), which provided us with a handy summary of why people are upset with the show. Everyone from Vanity Fair and Entertainment Weekly to regular readers got quoted, but many of the complaints seemed off-base to us.
