Once again, an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU seems to be strangely just a bit ahead of the zeitgeist.
In an episode entitled “The Newsroom,” Lieutenant Benson makes an appearance on a cable news network show to talk about a headline-making rape case she’s working on. But, suddenly the conversation takes a dramatic turn when one of the anchors makes an on-air accusation of assault — against her boss.
To conduct their investigation, Benson and ADA Barba must ask witnesses to put their jobs on the line. Sound familiar?
