A case of life not imitating art

In a recent episode of Commander in Chief, president Mackenzie Allen visited Hyattsville, Maryland in order to ease tensions. In real life, her visit had the exact opposite effect.

I don’t believe the show’s creative team set out to offend anyone (which, with the ratings being as low as they are, would not be the smartest move). Instead, this seems to be yet another example of Commander’s two biggest faults: a lack of subtlety and a lack of imagination. And in this case, also a lack of common sense. After all, the producers and writers already used artistic license when they changed the crime statistics to suit the storyline. Why not go all the way and change the name of the town, too?
