HuffPost Live's 'Spoiler Alert' Debates The Controversial Campus Rape Storyline In 'The Newsroom'

Sunday's episode of "The Newsroom" -- the series' penultimate installment -- made waves with a storyline about the victim of rape on a college campus. The plot came at an inopportune time, when the fallout of Rolling Stone's botched story on a rape at UVA is still developing. But things got worse when a "Newsroom" writer wrote that she was "kicked out of the room" when she expressed dissent about the story, and showrunner Aaron Sorkin subsequently responded that he was "saddened" that the writer had "broken" trust of a writers' room.

HuffPost Live tackled the controversy head-on in Monday's episode of "Spoiler Alert," when host Ricky Camilleri and our panel of TV fanatics debated what went wrong and how the episode played into the problems critics have had with "The Newsroom" since its inception.
