After a tough interview with Kile Avery, online troll extraordinaire, Jeff melts down on air and tells the world just what he thinks of the media machine.

NewSpin—the same fluff media company that Jeff most blames for the current state of journalism—wants to hire him to do a piece on Avery. “Avery’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. I’d sooner live under a bridge than work with him.” Kile Avery is a viral blogger that thinks love and traditional media are dead. He’s built an online empire quickly by posting scathing takedowns of love.

Can they set aside their differences to come together and make a ratings hit? Or is their story destined to become yet another clickbait headline?
