The two news outlets at Presley High School take clear sides about Student Council president Christy: While one produces stories fawning over Christy's cute First Boyfriend, the other digs through her report cards looking for scandals. But intrepid journalist Olivia wants to report real news, not puff pieces - and she may get her chance when a shadowy figure tips her off about a fundraising conspiracy that goes all the way to the top. Is someone at school making thousands of dollars off of bobbleheads? Can Olivia trust even a delicious snickerdoodle? Is the concept of truth itself so twisted that Beyonce herself might have to get involved? Find out in this wild ride of a satire.
