ACN Anchor Will McAvoy Lives in Louisville?!

On HBO's 'Newsroom" we are led to believe that ACN Anchor Will McAvoy lives and works in New York.

But as a recent letter to the editor published in the Louisville Courier-Journal shows, McAvoy lives in the Bluegrass state.

The paper published the letter, the words taken directly from the HBO show. It's obvious that the Editor of the Courier-Journal is not a viewer of the show or the words written would have stood out. And if not for the words, the name W. McAvoy surely would have.

The paper's readers of online edition didn't take long to point out that W. McAvoy does not really exist.

The paper pulled the letter with no comment. 

Is that a nice thing to do to an Emmy Winner?
