MacKenzie heads into the control room for the pre-show taping of Sandy, a.k.a. the Woman Who Ruined NewsNight's Integrity. Even those guys in the control room seem embarrassed, such a horrible news subject is Sandy. MacKenzie talks to Sandy and has a hard time even calling herself the "Executive Producer" of a show she is now so very ashamed of. Get over yourself. Will finally arrives to do his job and he's an asshole to everyone, especially Sandy. They get ready to tape, and MacKenzie whines "God, please give me a sign we're not doing a big thing badly." And then all the lights go out. The entire building just lost power. MacKenzie praises God's "comic timing." If God had anything to do with this show, everyone involved would have been struck by lightning and we'd be watching a pile of charred crispy bones for the past eight hours.
And on that thrilling cliffhanger, the episode, too, loses power. See you next week for Part 2. I don't know about you guys, but I cannot WAIT to see how the Newsroom crew digs its way out of this mess!!!
