Watch a Video of Aaron Sorkin’s Newsroom ‘Apology’

That not-really-an-apology Aaron Sorkin gave for The Newsroom at the Tribeca Film Festival? You can now see how it went down. You see, he's apologizing for the misconception other people had about why the show was set in the present day. Not to insult the way journalists handled those stories, just so that we could all better relate: "I set the show in the recent past because I didn’t want to make up fake news." Good.
