Will McAvoy Pens a Note
ran a letter to the editor from a W. McAvoy which was word for word from a recent Newsroom. They soon pulled it but check out the readers' comments for some fun reactions, such as: "I found myself laughing hysterically this morning as I was glancing over the forum and 'GOP Requirements' caught my eye. I read the article, and found myself feeling as if I had heard it before. Then, when I saw 'W. McAvoy, 40222' I knew I had heard it the previous Sunday. I must say, shame on the C-J editorial staff for not catching it. But then again, not everybody watches HBO. On the other hand, I completely agree with [the fictional] Mr. McAvoy's statement."
