TV Guide

The Newsroom returns to HBO for its sophomore season in mid-July, and the team again finds itself dealing with the fallout from unfiltered, politically incorrect statements made by hotheaded anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels).

This time, Will has likened the Tea Party to the "American Taliban," which has sparked rage among Internet commenters and earned "News Night" an official condemnation on the floor of the House.
