[There was a video here]

If you're not one of the privileged masses who subscribe to HBO, and you still want to watch Aaron Sorkin's new series The Newsroom, here's your chance. You can now watch the entire first episode (which clocks in at just over 70 minutes) on YouTube.

Still feeling unconvinced? Dan Rather dug it, and I can't think of a more reliable source. (To be fair, most other critics were somewhat less enthused.)
