Seeing as The Newsroom is one of the most “meh” shows of all time, this is the most “meh” news of all time. And naturally, the true lede was buried:

Specifically, Sorkin has been writing the script for a Steve Jobs biopic, which he has since turned in to Sony.

That, of course, is the biopic Aaron Sorkin has been writing based on Walter Isaacson’s book.

Speaking of the Steve Jobs biography, its author, Walter Isaacson, has written a piece for Time on Jobs’ passing, titled simply: American Icon. 
Writes Isaacson of his last meeting with Jobs for the book, just weeks ago:

As a writer, I was used to being detached, but I was hit by a wave of sadness as I tried to say goodbye. In order to mask my emotion, I asked the one question that was still puzzling me: Why had he been so eager, during close to 50 interviews and conversations over the course of two years, to open up so much for a book when he was usually so private? “I wanted my kids to know me,” he said. “I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did.”

You can find the article online here, but it’s only for Time subscribers right now. Otherwise, it will be available in a special commemorative issue with one last Steve Jobs cover (above).
And here’s the story behind the cover.
