"Inside Amy Schumer" comedian Amy Schumer and "The Good Wife" actor Josh Charles star in an incredible parody of Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom." In the clip, first published by Slate as an exclusive, Schumer and Charles are two employees trying to navigate life, love, and work in the high-stakes, at times morally compromising environment of...a fast food restaurant. It's the funniest send-up of the show since Dan Rather's unintentionally hilarious "Newsroom" recaps. Watch below:
