Weekend read: How Aaron Sorkin ruined politics

This week, I’ve chosen to recommend an article I really don’t agree with: Shana Pearlman’s argument that Aaron Sorkin produces rubbish television and has ruined politics. I love Sorkin’s drama, but was intrigued by the opposing view… even if Pearlman’s argument is a little undermined by spelling her target’s name wrong in the headline. The article is from the Dale & Co blog.
