MacKenzie says Casey Anthony will be the first story and Anthony Weiner is the second. Despite her supposedly American upbringing, she pronounces "Anthony" the English way, with a hard T instead of a TH. Jim says they don't have much for the Weiner block -- just Twitter pictures and denials. MacKenzie says they don't want to wait until they have anything more because that would be "newsy" and "elitist." I'm sorry, but how is it "newsy" to refuse to report a story until you get the facts from a bunch of other news outlets? That seems like the opposite of newsy to me. MacKenzie doesn't care. She says they're "abominations" anyway, and that's where Will objects. He says the country will be okay without them ordering it to "eat its vegetables" for a few weeks. Even Will knows that his show is awful and everyone hates it! I don't understand why he wants to do a show like that or why anyone wants to watch it. "GET IT THE FUCK TOGETHER!" he screams at everyone. Ah, just like the Will of the pilot! Nice to see he hasn't gotten any better in the past year. Don says Will is right. MacKenzie makes a sad face and says the failed war on drugs she wanted to bore her audience to tears with a story about is a lot like her own war on news people want to watch.
Charlie calls MacKenzie into Will's office. Or maybe it's MacKenzie's? Everything looks the same to me these days. Also, why is the lighting through the windows all early morning/early evening-looking, but it's supposed to be noon? GET IT THE FUCK TOGETHER! Brian tries to get in there too, but Charlie closes the door in his face. He reminds us all what happened last week yet again and then what happened a few scenes ago. MacKenzie and Will are cartoonishly shocked to hear that TMI has been hacking phones. MacKenzie selects Jim for Hancock-vetting duty. "Is he up for this?" Will asks. I would hope so. It's been over a year and you still haven't managed to hire anyone else capable of doing it. "He is, Will. I taught him how to do the news. I taught them all how to do the news," MacKenzie says. And that explains why they are all so bad at it.
Will asks Charlie to leave. He does. Now Will and MacKenzie can have it out over Brian. No, not the news and whether or not the Casey Anthony/Anthony Weiner stories are worthy, but over Brian because that's what MacKenzie is really upset about. MacKenzie asks Will why -- of all the writers out there -- he picked her ex-boyfriend. Will says that was the point; if he writes anything negative, it'll be shrugged off as latent personal issues. MacKenzie seems to accept that and asks if they can squeeze Dr. Dr. Sloan's news about a possible global financial meltdown in before the Weiner story. Will doesn't seem to care.
