Trayvon and 'The Newsroom'

Fun piece at The Onion urges that HBO's The Newsroom get axed before it gets a chance to cover the coming (in its timeline) shooting of Trayvon Martin and uproar and trial that followed. “Honestly, I just don’t know if I can make it through Will McAvoy’s self-righteous monologue criticizing other news outlets for selectively editing Zimmerman’s 911 call, or listen to an articulate new black staff member’s passionate, perfectly rehearsed speech to the rest of the News Night team at ACN about what it feels like to be racially profiled, or see how a heated office debate over race in America will somehow affect Jim and Maggie’s relationship. I just won’t be able to handle that, okay? So please, please let the show be canceled by then.”
