Aaron Sorkin, asshole, has done yet another assholish thing: he has fired almost everyone of The Newsroom's freshman writing staff.
In a statement about the cleaning house for season two, Newsroom's network HBO said:
Every year each show reassesses the needs of its writing staffs. This process is nothing out of the ordinary.
It is unclear how many writers were fired, but The Daily surmised it's less than 10.Reportedly, the only surviving writer is Corrine Kinsbury, who also happens to be Sorkin's ex-girlfriend.
That's rough. But maybe some of those writers will go off and write something on the Internet?
