The opening credits for the first series of The Newsroom are a nostalgic tribute to the honorable tradition of truth-telling US news reporting.

The second season changes this to a much busier sequence, with the music re-scored as well. Why were the opening credits changed?

  • Love to see something definitive on this...that' always bugged me.

Unconfirmed Reddit statement

"Sorkin said in the Blu-Ray commentary that S1's into was a little too slow, and didn't get across the urgency that one would find in a Newsroom setting. While the S1 into was more nostalgic of a news studio, he wanted you to feel engaged with how fast things were moving."
