'Newsroom' recap: Even God Hates This Show
Meanwhile, Charlie goes to the library to meet Late for Dinner. They recap basically the entire last episode and Late for Dinner informs Charlie that the NSA is illegally listening to citizens' phone calls and somehow so is AWM. Leona doesn't know about it. Reese does. Jim is assigned to vet Late for Dinner as a source so Will doesn't get "Dan Rathered." That is not how you want your name to be used as a verb.
And in the annals of the lesser characters, Neal pitches a story about internet trolls that requires him to go deep undercover. A regular Nellie Bly, he is. Dr. Dr. Sloan is furious that her boring economy news about the debt ceiling isn't given enough airtime because Americans would rather watch the Casey Anthony trial. And Maggie goes on an anti-Bachmann Christianity rant before being assigned to produce a segment about the lowest of the very low: a woman who had a Twitter-fling with Anthony Weiner. Fortunately, God - no doubt pleased with Maggie's earlier speech - turns the lights out before the horrible Weiner weiner segment can be taped. To be continued!
