HBO’s Newsroom Review: No apology to the extreme right

By James Turnage

I Just finished watching the “Newsroom.” I am well aware that FOX “news” and our resident radio extremist and drug addict will call this a liberal form of propaganda. What it is, is the truth. There is no liberal media that has an audience as large as FOX. That is because their audience wants to be told what to think. The truth is not what their audience wants to hear.

The truth about what Mr. Obama has done in his first term has been reported with intentional lies and half truths. Ignorant individuals such as Palin, Bachmann, Beck and Limbaugh have reported falsehoods. Their only purpose is to promote their own fame and fortune.

I am not a democrat, and I am definitely not a republican, at least in this time and what they don’t stand for. I believe in telling the truth.

The extreme side of the right wing continues to spread falsehoods. They have one agenda: to destroy our country and create a new country that banishes freedoms. They want to put an end to religious freedom, to freedom of speech and freedom of sexual preference. They would establish a country that protects wealthy, white Christians as the sole ruling party of our country.

The majority of citizens in our country have suffered enough. A slogan by an extremist group is right, “it’s time to take back our country.” But it’s not what they mean. We, the people, need representation in our government. We must cast our vote for those who represent the majority of Americans, not the two percent. They have the money, but if we are united, we still have the power.

    The right wing extrememist you discribed is actually traits of Proogressives. Progressives want to destroy our country in order to establish a socialist or communist government of which you want. The true traits of a right wing extremeist is God loving, Freedom loving, Liberty loving and hates the extortion and ponzi schemes forced on us through deceit by the Progressives

    Was this supposed to be satire?

    This is not a review of “The Newsroom.” This is you repeating tired points about the American right wing. In that way, it’s very much like “The Newsroom,” but in the same way that show is supposed to provide drama, something labeled “review” should talk about the thing it’s supposed to be reviewing.

    I agree with you, and I mostly agree with Sorkin, but the people either tuning in or reading this know about politics, and you and he would do better not repeating tired political points to them in lieu of providing either the promised drama or analysis of said drama

    Actually false, this country was taken from native Americans by the pilgrims. Who ran from the Christians in Europe because of religious persecution. This is some of the stuff they believed in, “for the Pilgrims, there were only two sacraments: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The other sacraments (Confession, Penance, Confirmation, Ordination, Marriage, Confession, Last Rites) of the Church of England and Roman Catholic church were inventions of man, had no scriptural basis, and were therefore superstitions, to the point of being heretical.” Furthermore, they believed that marriage was a state affair and not a church matter, so one can argue that gay marriage was allowed. Puritans are a little bit different than the Christians, you see and know now a days.

    Seems a little anti white Christian. Country was created by white Christians…perhaps bit of respect is due. I agree with everything else you said.
