Can anyone tell me if there is a cd/dvd on sale with all the songs featured on series 1-2-3 of The Newsroom.

In an episode of newsroom the staff attempts to implement a new kind of debate, one which would resemble a cross examination. While it doesn't happen on the show, it can and should happen in real life. Newsroom is ending, but let's make the spirit live on. We have a congressional election in november. Contact the candidates and inquire as to whether or not they would submit to such a debate, contact the networks...tell them this is the kind of debate you want.
At the very end of Blackout Pt 1, MacKenzie turns the Herb (the Technical Director) and asks him how he wants to __________ Sandy. It sounds like she says "Kye - Roll", but I'm unsure of the spelling. I can't find a reference anywhere, and presume its a piece of insider jargon. Anyone here know the actual spelling and/or meaning?
Dear "Newsroom", in a case of tortious interference and wrongful termination, there is no federal subject matter jurisdiction. Therefore, the case would have been filed in N.Y. State Court. So, Reese's contention that "we will pay Jerry Dantana when a federal judge orders us to" is erroneous. A federal judge would not hear a case based on a cause of action arising from questions of state common law.

p.s. do your homework.
Guys, I'm kind of late for the show. I started watch the first episode of first season of the Newsroom this summer. And because I'm a Chinese and I don't know English as well as you native speakers do, I've followed the show really slow. For every episode I've watched at least twice, once with Chinese subtitle(in it there are some background knowledge noted too) and again with English subtitle. This show is really wonderful, the lines are all very intelligent/funny/meaningful.
Then I found this moment in episode 9 of season 1. At around half of the film, Will, Mac and Charlie listened to Jim talking about his research of the NSA guy. Jim said "And he was arrested for solicitation in 1979." Here, I read the wikipedia for the word Solicitation, here is the meaning:
solicitation is the name of a crime, an inchoate offense that consists of a person offering money or inducing another to commit a crime with the specific intent that the person solicited commit the crime.
However, moments later Mac said "yes, he tried to pick up a hooker, but that doesn't mean he's lying about the NSA."
So here comes some confusion to my mind. I didn't hear Jim talked about this crime. Then the same wikipedia page gave me the answer:
In England and Wales, the term soliciting is usually "for a person (whether male or female) persistently to loiter or solicit in a street or public place for the purpose of prostitution" under the Street Offences Act 1959 as amended.
So for a native speaker, you may find this funny. It's a joke but I didn't get it until I read through the explanation on wikipedia.
The finale closes to ”Let my love open the door" written by Pete Townshend. But it's not the original album version. Anyone know which version it is, or who this version is performed by?
Now that the show is a hit, how long do you think it will draw out before Maggie and Jim get together. There are sparks when they are in a scene.
Anyone want to update Season two? We can't figure out why Maggie's hair keeps changing - the timeline seems off or her hair grew back awfully fast after gettting back from Africa...
Does anybody know a source to get the transcripts for The Newsroom episodes?
Here is the likely basis for Operation Genoa:
I loved the opening for the first season! It tied the casts' efforts to the historic heroes of news reporting! The new one is "average/fine...but a poor replacement for "awesome".
