The Internet is not the Greatest Invention in the World

If you’re at all familiar with Aaron Sorkin’s HBO show “Newsroom,” you’ve probably seen the famous monologue delivered by main character, Will McAvoy, a brilliant yet cold, brooding, ratings-obsessed nightly news anchor for the fictional Atlantic Cable News (ACN) Network. “It’s not the greatest country in the world,” McAvoy sharply retorts to a naive college […]
