Aaron Sorkin's highly anticipated series "The Newsroom" premieres this Sunday on HBO with plenty of TV critics already calling it a game changer for television. Sorkin, an Academy and Emmy award winning screenwriter and producer, has an impressive repertoire that includes "A Few Good Men," "The West Wing," "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," and "The Social Network." HBO's "Girls" has received a[ mountain of criticism for the lack of diversity](http://colorlines.com/archives/2012/04/lesly_arfin_lead_writer_of_hbos_g...) and how actors of color are portrayed on the show. "The Newsroom" has three regular actors of color but after reading Emily Nussbaum's critique of the show's first episode I'm left wondering if the show is doing any better in terms of how the actors are portrayed.
