Louisville Paper Publishes Quote from <i>The Newsroom</i> Disguised as Letter to the Editor

The Louisville Courier-Journal recently published a Letter to the Editor that might sound familiar for fans of The Newsroom.

It turns out, the letter is a direct quote from Sunday night’s episode. The author “W. McAvoy,” is recognizable to most fans as the main character Will McAvoy, played by Jeff Daniels. The letter has been pulled, but as journalist and blogger Jim Romenesko points out, the comments section still remains on the paper’s website.
