McAvoy (verb)

1. To "McAvoy" someone is to bully or belittle someone within your peer group or staff in a professional news-gathering organization using superior wit & argumentative skill to accomplish your own, self-inflated goals.

2. To be McAvoy'd is to work in production and content-based journalism somewhere on the east coast.

3. Being McAvoy'd is usually followed by drinking in a cheesy bar, self-loathing with other journalists about low pay, self-esteem issues and lamenting why your father didn't play catch with you more often when you were 12.

4. The term is most often used by a pair of reporters at a daily newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland in deference to the HBO show Newsroom and the sharp-tongued character Will McAvoy (played by Jeff Daniels).
Editor: "It's 9:15. We have a 10:00 deadline. You get that story to me by 9:45 — don't make me McAvoy you!"

Reporter (picking up the phone): "Shit. This guy better answer his phone..."
