The Newsroom—Alan Poul Community Event Write-Up When I heard that Alan Poul, one of the most prominent people on the set of The  Newsroom (my favorite TV show), was coming to USC, I knew I had to go see his talk.  The Newsroom has been a great formative influence on my life. I always knew I wanted  to be a journalist, but the impact I saw the characters have on the lives of ordinary people  over the first two seasons of the show really solidified my thoughts about journalism and  the good I could do within the field, I knew I had to pursue that career. Poul gave some  very interesting insights into the show and the behind-the-scenes drama involved with  Season 3. Apparently Aaron Sorkin, the creator of the show, did not feel that he had  enough material to properly create Season 3—and it took months of convincing by Poul  and others at HBO before Sorkin relented and created the third season. As a viewer, it

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
