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.

Episode Goofs
Around the 18 minute mark Maggie is in Sloan's office and they talk. Early in the scene Maggie tucks her hair behind her left ear. As the camera shots change angles, some show her hair not behind her hair and some with it behind her ear.
