HBO preems 'Newsroom'

The June 20 premiere of HBO’s “The Newsroom” in Hollywood drew thesps from HBO series past and present, including Sufe Bradshaw, Kristin Davis, James Gandolfini and Timothy Simons.

After the starry pilot screened at the Arclight, guests zipped down the street to an afterparty at Boulevard 3.

And despite being set in a cable newsroom, cast members said TV is not usually their source for news.

“I really get most of my news online now,” said John Gallagher Jr.

Chris Chalk interrupted to say his source is “usually Twitter,” as Gallagher continued, “I can’t remember a recent news story I didn’t get from my phone!”
