Aaron Sorkin’s new series, “The Newsroom” began on HBO on Sunday night (first episode on YouTube).  When you watch it, keep an eye out for the classic Sorkinisms that he has used in his previous projects, from “The West Wing” to “Sports Night” to “The American President.”  Here’s a montage of them, assembled by Kevin Porter, who even grabbed a line Sorkin took from Tom Hanks’ Oscar acceptance speech for “Philadelphia.” Spoiler alert: the final example of Sorkin re-using Sorkin is from his commencement address at Syracuse University, where he’s appeared twice and used the same line both times

    • Not being allowed the chance to review a incestuous Sorkin video while commenting I won’t be visiting this site so long as it is infested with FaceBook?

      Best video I never watched.
