    A news team attempts to create a news show that reports the news in an ethical and reasonable way. They take real, newsworthy events from our world as they’re happening (such as bin Laden’s assassination, NSA spying, etc) and report on them as if they were an actual news station that followed rational and moral guidelines, in a biting criticism of our popular press and a clever blurring of art and reality.

    3.02: Run

    directed by: Greg Mottola written by: Aaron Sorkin Air Date: November 16, 2014

    Charlie and Reese confront Reese’s half-siblings, Randy and Blair (Kat Dennings), about their hostile takeover. After some heated back-and-forth, Leona arrives and offers to buy their shares for a higher price. Neal and Will meet Rebecca Halliday to discuss Neal’s legal situation and she confirms that he has committed espionage. She and Will agree that ACN should not run the story. Mac asks her friend, Molly (Mary McCormack), an FBI agent, about espionage charges and the media. Molly tells her that reporters are never charged with espionage but can be charged with contempt. Mac tells Rebecca, Will and Neal they have to run the story. Returning from Boston, Maggie overhears an EPA official, Richard (Paul Lieberstein), on the phone with a reporter, making off-the-record disparaging remarks about the President. Maggie reveals that she overheard, but Richard makes her feel that she’s violated ethics and she tells him she won’t use any of the story. Richard then gives her an exclusive story and a report that carbon dioxide levels are higher than they have been for millions of years. Don informs Sloan that he purchased stock prior to Sloan reporting it in a newscast. Sloan fears that since they are a couple, it is against the ACN handbook. Sloan inadvertently informs Jim that she’s been sleeping with Don. Hallie sends a middle-of-the-night tweet from the ACN account making a joke in poor taste about the Boston Marathon and Republicans. Though she quickly deletes it, other news sources pick it up and Charlie fires her. After the ACN senior staff discuss Neal’s situation with Rebecca, Will realizes that Neal has already confirmed a portion of the leak (concerning Equatorial Kundu), forcing ACN’s hand. Will has Neal give him the name of his source, then tells him how to get out of town. As the FBI execute a search warrant on ACN computers, Molly informs Mac, Will and Charlie that Neal will likely be charged with espionage if he is found to have assisted the source in any way. Neal escapes the building, destroying his phone and the note Will gave him telling him to run. Takes place on April 20, 2013.


    3.03: Main Justice

    directed by: Alan Poul written by: Jon Lovett & Aaron Sorkin Air Date: November 23, 2014

    The news team hollowly threaten to do a live broadcast of the FBI raid on the newsroom in order to persuade them to stand down, which works. Charlie is informed by Leona and Reese that to keep the company running they will need to sell ACN to Lucas Pruit (B. J. Novak), a young, idealistic libertarian billionaire. Don meets the new HR rep, Wyatt (Keith Powell), who believes Don and Sloan are in a relationship. Maggie’s segment on the EPA report goes to air with Will interviewing Richard. However, the interview does not go well, as Richard continually remarks that the effect of human CO2 emissions into the atmosphere is unchangeable. Will, Mac, Charlie, and Rebecca meet the Attorney General’s representative in Washington to discuss Neal’s situation, but Will does not offer up any information other than describing how he orchestrated much of the situation himself. At the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Charlie has a meeting with Lucas to discuss buying the network, Mac is approached by a woman named Lily (Clea DuVall) who says, and then confirms, that she is Neal’s source, and Will is subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury. Takes place between April 20 and April 27, 2013.


    3.04: Contempt

    directed by: Anthony Hemingway written by: Deborah Schoeneman & Aaron Sorkin Air Date: November 30, 2014

    Preparing to air the Kundu story, the team gets the first reporter who wrote the story, along with his family, out of the country safely. Mac has a meeting with Lily in Washington to ask her to extend the deadline to broadcast the story before she leaks it, but she does not promise to. The story is ready to air but Reese says they cannot run it. Pruit tells the team his new vision for the company, including user-generated content, which Charlie does not like. Sloan and Don keep dodging the human resources rep, however he already knows they are dating and was merely amusing himself. Sloan and Charlie try to find another buyer for ACN, but are unsuccessful when they find out the new buyer has just been using them as leverage to buy another company. Jim and Hallie fight over their views of journalism and break up after she writes about a fight they had for her new online column. Will continues to defy the government by refusing to name the source of the stolen documents and is held in contempt and sentenced to jail. Before he goes to jail, he and Mac get married at the courthouse. Takes place between April 27 and May 3, 2013.
