Meanwhile, Mac goes from being an embedded reporter in a war zone to sitting in the control room during Will’s show, where she regularly saves him from looking like an idiot on national TV. Maggie volunteers to report from a war-torn region of Africa and narrowly avoids being killed. Sloan Sabbith holds a PhD, goes toe-to-toe with the president of the news division, punches Wall Street jerks, speaks fluent Japanese, and stands up for what she thinks is right, even when it means physically threatening her executive producer. Leona Lansing owns the network and, it’s safe to say, scares the shit out of almost everyone, including her male subordinates.

The Newsroom is chuck-full of robust female characters. When faced with flawed women, we find ourselves utterly incapable of appreciating them for who they are as characters. Instead, we see them as universal representations of their gender, which means Sorkin doesn’t have a “woman problem.” We do.

Feminism, as a movement, constantly begs Hollywood to depict, “real” female characters. We refuse to accept the overly sexualized “hero” like Cat Woman or the sexless, overworked bitch like Miranda Priestly. We’re starving for smart, funny, flawed female characters who, if they don’t actually “have it all,” are struggling to get there like the rest of us. But, when we actually see those characters on TV, we immediately complain about what we said we wanted all along — we turn on the writers of those shows for not crafting the “perfect” female character.

Lets just slow clap it out and also, this is basically everything I wanted to say, but they said it better.

Manchester is such a great episode. Both parts. All of it. Toby especially. But mostly Margaret telling Leo off like an unruly child.

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

socialjusticekoolaid:

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

That’s not a knife, this is a kn — well, it’s a cable, actually. It may not be very handy in a fight, but who has time for fighting when you’ve got a fully charged phone on which to play Candy Crush?”

"She’s insulting me! She’s insulting my family. She’s insulting my congregation, and she’s insulting my faith. She’s implying that Christians are imbeciles who’ll believe anything, and reducing God to a party hat that endorses political candidates."

#not-so-innocent country girl Maggie needs to be protected at all costs #she is precious and she is strong and she is flawed and she is intelligent #and she has all these big dreams and got so fucked up #she is so damaged but so strong and her MiniMac story arc is phenomenal #and we need to just protect all the newsroom bbs but especially this one #(also I agree with the quote too) #newsroom #fandom #maggie jordan

Mr. President, can you tell us right now if you’ll be seeking a second term?
