Aaron Sorkin’s ‘The Newsroom’ Gets Eviscerated in Funny or Die Sketch (Video)

Aaron Sorkin’s “The Newsroom” is getting a taste of its own medicine in a new parody of the first episode’s memorable speech in which Jeff Daniels’ anchorman character, Will McAvoy, delivers an epic takedown of America at a college speaking engagement.

In the HBO drama, Daniels is asked by a nervous college student what makes America the greatest country in the world. In the Funny or Die sketch, the same college student asks actor Luke Barnett why “The Newsroom” is the greatest show on television.
