    Had kind of high hopes for this but based on the first five minutes it seems like more liberal garbage from HBO.

    Maher is unwatchable this election season with his over the top partisan bullshit... this seems in the same vein. I get it, O'Reilly is a clown, but come on with this.

    I've also had to end my bro-crush with Brian Williams on NBC news after, in the past few weeks:

    - representing Trayvon from his 14 year old year book photo and race baiting

    - doctoring the Sandusky tapes to avoid that pederast's admission of guilt

    - doctoring Romney's fast food sandwich tapes



    We cannot, as a people, stand for this malicious tinkering of facts as they are presented to the public.

    And the kicker, the G.Dub head on spike on Game of Thrones... totally inappropriate. That was not an accident.

    Gah... fucking hippie geeds have to ruin everything.

    I think I'm already out... Dumb and Dumber in the lead role seems appropriate.

    Opening meltdown was stupid.

    Haven't seen any positive reviews for this.

    Looks like an exercise of mental masturbation for this Sorkin feller.

    Olivia Mund is in it though.

    Seems better than whatever else is on and Sam Waterson is a decent actor

    Liberal bullshit, Bill Maher approves, Aaron Sorkin's career is gonna take a hit. I give is one star out of five. a total failure.

    that was the spin out of Sorkin's camp the media was offended or some shit. No it's truely preachy high falutin' bull shit that nobody will relate too, It's based on the basketcase Keith Olbermann, so before it even got out of the box it was destined to fail.

    God willing HBO cancel's this shitshow but who know's they have an agenda so they will probably bite the bullit and claim the audience isn't sophisticated enough. Look how long they have held onto super Commie Bill Maher, they have no shame.

    The previews I saw made it look like it was based on many people's perception of Fox News....

    No it's based on Keith Olbermann that's who Sorkin was embeded with to research it. I guess they claim America sucks dick because of white people and minorities are being abused, and anyone who oposes Baraka Obama is Racist and ignorant.
