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.
@TP_Adam My pleasure and thank you!Your reporting and archiving was vital to the research we did.— Gideon Yago (@gideonyago) July 9, 2012
This came in response to Peck's gratitude for the aforementioned plug:
@gideonyago thanks for the ThinkProgress shoutout on last night's episode!— Adam Peck (@TP_Adam) July 9, 2012
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:
After 5 years scrivening for development, tonight = my first writing credit c/o a very generous boss. All the good lines are his. #Newsroom— Gideon Yago (@gideonyago) July 8, 2012
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.
