After facing withering reviews and accusations of sexism, HBO’s The Newsroom is going to rearrange some chairs. According to insiders quoted by The Daily, most of the writers on the cable drama have been fired, with the exception of Aaron Sorkin’s ex-girlfriend Corinne Kinsbury. The West Wing and Social Network writer is famous for the large role he takes in solely scripting his shows. It’s unclear how many, if any, of the fired writers will be replaced. An HBO rep told The Daily, “Every year each show reassesses the needs of its writing staffs. This process is nothing out of the ordinary.” The network has renewed The Newsroom for a second season.
