Vulture Video: Aaron Sorkin on ‘Mentally Disordered’ Blog Commenters

Yesterday, New York's Mark Harris asked Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher about Social Network subject Mark Zuckerberg. Today, Sorkin turns the tables and asks Harris about the early online reaction to Network's original announcement: "Why on the Internet is there an immediate rush to incredibly negative judgment based on no information at all?" Also, he's an avid reader of blog comments: "You are witnessing mad men and mad women ... I get to hear their thoughts ... It only takes five [comments] before you find somebody with a severe mental disorder." (He didn't mean Vulture commenters, we don't think.)
