HBO has released a trailer for season 2 of Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" premiering July 14th. The drama about a network cable news station will continue exploring the lives of its reporters and producers as they deal with romantic entanglements, big egos and journalistic integrity.

Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) is catching flack for a comment he made comparing the Tea Party to the American Taliban. Meanwhile, Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn) may be involved in a potential sex scandal when alleged naked pictures of her surface.

Jim (John Gallagher Jr.) opts to follow Mitt Romney's campaign trail in an effort to escape the inter-office love triangle he's in with Maggie (Allison Pill) and Don (Thomas Sadowski), indicating that the 2012 presidential election will serve as the real-life backdrop for the show in its second season.

It's dramatic, full of threats, elicit sex and political shakeups. Yup, it's "The Newsroom."

Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think.
