The Newsroom: First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All the Lawyers

Will, Mac, and the rest of the 'News Night' staff begin giving depositions to a high-powered ACN lawyer. The team is in major trouble due to botched reporting. Flashbacks begin to reveal exactly what happened. Meanwhile, an inflammatory remark gets Will pulled from ACN's 9/11 coverage, a heartbroken Jim volunteers to fill in for a embedded reporter on the Romney campaign bus, and Neal investigates the growing 'Occupy Wallstreet' movement.
