The Newsroom: Bullies

Sloan serves as substitute host for Elliot during the nuclear fiasco at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant. Unfortunately, she needlessly slams a company rep with harsh questions, even going as far as bringing up statements that were said to her off the record. Charlie is absolutely furious. Meanwhile, Will's sleepless nights lead him back to therapy. He also receives negative feedback about his hostile treatment of a guest.
