Controversial though it may have been, HBO's 'The Newsroom' made plenty of headlines of its own by addressing real-life news stories, incorporated into the show's sliding timeline of remaining about one year behind real life. Now, as the Aaron Sorkin-scripted drama prepares to launch a second season on HBO this summer, will it cover some of 2012's biggest stories, or gracefully sidestep more sensitive tragedies like the December Newtown Massacre?

Despite its premise of following real-world events approximately one year after they take place, we still know relatively little about the second season of Aaron Sorkin's controversial HBO drama 'The Newsroom.'
