So, it’s another Nice-Naughty contrast thing. It’s also boring beyond description but let that pass.
Nice’s idea does sound like the sort of thing that a high school-level journalism class would go ahead and produce. It’s positive, it boosts the school, it encourages participation, and shows the value of hard work. Yeah, she’ll probably blow all that by choosing Chullo as her subject but until that moment it’s golden.
Naughty, on the other hand…she’s been at the school for a week, maybe, and they’re already letting her into the administration offices to check the finances? Wow, she is a) either a really fast worker in the charm department, or b) more likely is just making it all up because it’s sensationalistic and will be the talk of the school. Likelihood of getting the green light? Yeah, sure, a project that attacks the staff. She’ll be lucky if she’s not deported back to Crankshaftberg. Say…maybe she should do a sensationalist piece on how some cartoonists are still getting paid the big bucks while barely phoning it in!
I assume that both of these projects are for the journalism class, and would likely be viewed only by members of that class. What little we’ve seen of “The Bleat” doesn’t really seem to cater to this sort of format–it’s school announcements, sports scores, cafeteria and probably lost and found. I know I’ve said that several times, but I really think it bears repeating. It’s not a news channel. So Naughty might get a good grade on technical aspects, but if she thinks she’s gonna bust this school wide open, she…will fit right in here at Westview High.
Another note on the artwork. Naughty and Nice are both dashed off haphazardly, while Les is delicately detailed. It is nice to see the word-balloons not stuffed with empty space, though.
Say, isn’t that Cindy’s old news desk in the back?
