Writer/director Aaron Sorkin told the New York Times that his new HBO series “The Newsroom” has a bias toward either party because he doesn’t have one.

Said Sorkin: “I have no political background, and I have no political agenda. I do think that there are going to be people who say that I’m just putting my own politics on display. Which again I’m not. I don’t really have my own politics. I’m very easily convinced of other people’s position.”
