Journalists Compete for Views on Scoreboard

I remember a scene from a recent film (or possibly TV episode) in which journalists/bloggers at a news website competed for how many views each of their stories received. They sat in a bullpen and a scoreboard was on a screen above them, constantly updating and showing whose story was #1, #2, and so on. It was cut-throat and everyone cared about nothing but increasing their ranking. The main character was frustrated they couldn’t get higher in the rankings, but eventually clawed their way to the top, and was rewarded by getting a more important story to cover.
