Is it ironic that Aaron Sorkin has attacked Fox News for lying, describing them as 'the worst culprits' ( erview.html); his characters in The Newsroom rail against channels like Fox News; and his drama and his characters make a lot of points about compromising principles for money or other reasons, in this and his other shows, while his shows demonstrate how principled people should behave in comparison to everyone else (ad infinitum), yet he has allowed (or been forced to allow) his show to be broadcast around the world on various sister channels to Fox News owned by the same corporation?
