As much as we love "The Newsroom" it has led to something of a problem for us -- we are now going around trying to civilize people.  Everyone we meet who does something truly stupid (or even a little bit stupid) is yet another person we feel as though we need to pull aside and explain things to.  Do they realize that the government isn't there for them?  Do they understand the power of the media?  Do they get the responsibility that journalists have?  Do they bother with all that celebrity gossip?  Can they figure out what major world event "The Newsroom" is leading up to in a particular episode?  The list of questions goes on and on.  Ah, well, at least the show will spoon feed us all the answers we need tonight.
