Reese and Leona are angry about the News Night program's direction. Leona is irked by her network alienating the rising political powers among the Tea Party with their coverage because of their potential to influence her business. Reese has a ratings expert link the show's coverage to declining ratings in a meeting with Charlie Skinner. Charlie argues that it is their duty to expose shortcomings and prejudice among their leaders. Leona warns him that she will fire Will if the problems persist.
