HBO's Tea Party-Bashing 'Newsroom' Writer Thanks Think Progress for 'Vital' Research

As NewsBusters previously reported, this past Sunday's Tea Party-bashing episode of HBO's The Newsroom featured a lead character prominently mentioning the far-left, George Soros-funded propaganda organization Think Progress.

On Monday, the co-author of that episode, one Gideon Yago, tweeted his thanks to TP reporter Adam Peck for "reporting and archiving" that was "vital to the research we did":

This came in response to Peck's gratitude for the aforementioned plug:

So, one of the most far-left propaganda outlets in the nation, funded by one of the world's most far-left billionaires, is helping HBO writers with "research and archiving."

That gives you a warm feeling all over, doesn't it?

As for Yago, he is a former correspondent for MTV and CBS News making his screenwriting debut with The Newsroom. On Sunday, he boasted about this being his first writing credit:

That boss would be Aaron Sorkin.

Makes you wonder if TP will continue to provide left-wing propaganda to Sorkin and Yago to bash conservatives in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned.
