The Newsroom: The Genoa Tip

The team gets a seemingly reliable tip on the story that will eventually bring 'News Night' to its knees. Mac and Sloan pressure Will to cover the USA's use of drones more heavily on the show. Meanwhile, Don advocates for condemned prisoner Troy Davis, and urges Will to take sides on the case on the air. Lisa finally sees the Youtube video of Maggie, and ends their friendship. Neal gets arrested at an 'Occupy Wallstreet' protest.
