Hold on there with this award. Seems there is alot of bias involved here with politics and here is why. Jeff needs to explain this to us who do NOT kowtow to the liberal ideology: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2012/08/27/newsroom-wraps-season-tea-party-trashing

Hi TaterSalad, I'm not sure if The Newsroom's views have anything to do with the Purple Rose nominations. Thoughts?

When will the Purple Rose show this documentary? #1 in the box office and yet the liberal press doesn't mention this documentary that Barack Obama does not want you to watch. I wonder why? http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2012/09/01/Box-Office-Spet-1-2012
