The Differences Between The Newsroom And An Actual Newsroom (Thought Catalog) - "On Newsroom, producers stop what they’re doing to have long, eloquent arguments about the state of America, journalism, and life itself. In a newsroom, producers stop what they’re doing, occasionally, to go to the bathroom. Other than that, they’re really quite busy." Absolutely true. When I'm in the homepage producer chair, I only leave to pee, or maybe (on Saturdays) refill my coffee cup. And, yes, this is an admission that I watch Aaron's Sorkin's new HBO series.
