HBO has posted the first episode of Sorkin’s divisive new show online in full. It’s not embeddable though, so you’ll have to click through to watch.
I’m not posting this because it’s The Newsroom on YouTube. I didn’t watch The Newsroom and I’m not particularly interested in what Warren Ellis called Studio 60: Part 2.

I watched it. I loved it. You should watch it, too. On YouTube…in its entirety.
