Playing Both Sides

USA network is promoting its new show (eerily similar to a certain political family) Political Animals by launching a digital “newspaper” the Washington Globe.

The so-called newspaper is a second screen to the new and popular show(see ew for a favorable review).
The site will feature original content that goes along with the shows’s storyline.

It’s an interesting twist considering **spoiler alert** that the news people are clearly the bad guys here and unlike HBO’s The Newsroom, politicians are likable, vulnerable, and human whereas the journalists are soulless robots who have never taken ethics classes and are consistently waiting for the next big scoop.

Since I’m not at my laptop, here are some screenshots from my phone, hope they are intriguing enough to take you to the globe site!
