The character's name is Tess. She looks much better there than she does on the show. They frump her up a bit for the show.

Dan Rather has been effusive with his praise for the show and claims that Sorkin got it right. Maybe he's just an idealist.

I don't have any first-hand knowledge about any newsroom. I'm just relating what several reporter friends have told me. Maybe my friends just didn't/don't work for big enough networks.

wow wow wow
just goes to show you
i thought that was the best scene best moment of the ENTIRE series thus far...
i thought it was brilliant and rewinded it 3 times it had me laughing so hard.
and even took it one step further and it was watercooler banter the next day.

Who played the chick Sandy that came forward with the texts from Anthony Weiner? She looked really familiar, but her name wasn't in the end credits.

HBO spells it "Sandee"(Though other sites refer to Sandy). It's Alison Becker.

She seems to have been on Parks and Rec a few times though I don't recognize her.

Is she the one who plays Aziz Ansari's Canadian wife? I think she is. Wendy or something.

No, I think she was a reporter of some sort. I think maybe that guy who left after the first season banged her.

Yes. Did he lose a ton of weight or something?



It will be really funny if those two characters hook up on this show now.
