Everyone wants to get the jump on this news so they are calling sources fast and furious. They finally learn that there has been a mission to get Osama. They want to break the story ahead of the president’s address, but Will wants to hold off. He fears that reporting the story early could jeopardize the mission.
For some it is a somber moment of remembrance of the event of 9/11 But for most,it is night for exuberant cheering and celebration. They are cheering in the newsroom. They are cheering in the streets. They are cheering throughout the country. The show captures the excitement of that moment perfectly. It brings the memories flooding back to me—how I felt when I heard that news on that Sunday night, May 1, 2011.
The most emotional moment of the show: As the credits for the show roll, we hear the president’s words as a voice over. His voice slowly trails away. It just about brought tears to my eyes.
