Yes folks, that’s right. I decided to start a paper! You see, I have grown a tad tired of all this sensationalism that comes with journalism today. All the twisting of words and facts to sell papers, all in the name of “truth”, well it just didn’t settle right for me. So I decided to do something about it! I give you, the “Truth Tribune”. In this paper I will give you the facts, untwisted. I will tell it like it is, without using sensationalism to get readers. I rely on good old fashioned honest journalism, just like the Odyssey Times. I hope to shed light on some issues, help people to see the other side of things

So without further adieu, I give you the first issue. Albeit it’s not much, only one article, but more will come eventually. So in the meantime, enjoy the first issue of “Truth Tribune”.

Exposing The Scribbler -By Eugene Blackgaard

I've never liked the Scribbler terribly much, truth be known. He's an OK guy, but I don't agree with his newsgathering methods. I happened, however, to run into the Scribbler in person, and was able to record his doings. I believe I was able to expose a bit of the “real Scribbler.”

You see, I am a good friend of Kermit the Frog, and I happened to be visiting the set of the Muppet Show one day. It was there that Scribbler happened to arrive, and I learned many interesting things about this man. For one who is so obsessed with telling the "truth", it's interesting he never told us his real name: "Fleet Scribbler."

The Scribbler is infamous for his interviews and analyses of people, so I thought it’d be interesting to write an article about him. Have him see what it’s like to be on the receiving end of the pen and notepad. Anyway, I took some photos of the whole ordeal, and even recorded some sound clips of Scribbler talking to the Muppet cast! So, view and listen for yourself. :)

May the "truth" be known, Scribbler. Let's see exactly what type of guy you are.

So, whether your view of the Scribbler has changed, or if you think that’s pretty much no different than he normally acts, I hope you’ve enjoyed this inside look at: “The Scribbler”.

Good job but it was kinda short with only one article. That one article though was researched well and had a lot of stuff. Keep up the good work.

Yikes three newspappers!

Well, it was only the pilot issue, the next will have much more content. :)
So, what was it like to hear the voice of the actual "Scribbler"?

Well, I could have if I had a lot of time. ;)
Those sound clips were recorded right off the Muppet Shot Tv show! :)

Well! Eugene Blackgaard has decided to spend his worthless time writing and posting his own rank, amatur newpaper. And, as Mellow stated, you didn't actually find out who I am. As interesting as my time was with the Muppets, I must say that there is much more facinating and juicy info here on the TOO.

And let me be the first to say that I don't think your paper will be able to match the brilliance and cunning wit of my paper. I give your paper two, maybe three weeks.

And besides, what kind of an editor would you make? If you and The Top Crusader win, you will be biased. And who wants a biased newspaper?

Members of the TOO, I ask you. Do we really want a newspaper run by someone who might be in office?

Yeah, it was way too short, and not really very funny or informative. I'll stick to the Tattler, thank you.

Very well done, Eugene Blackgaard. =D> It should be quite interesting having three newspapers in the ToO, but I'm all for it! Different perspectives on different stories. :D

Touchy touchy, Fleet. I can tell you don't like being on the spot, you're not used to it. I cannot tell you how pleased I was to see Mr. Burns put you in your place. ;)

As for my paper, I am about as unbiased as they get. My paper would be completley seperate from things at the office. I'm just here to offer my opininons and views on the things around this town, and I'll do it truthfully no matter what you say. :)

So, Mr. Fleet Scribbler, all I can say is try not worry too much about it. I'm sure my paper is no match for yours. :anxious:

The next issue will be normal sized.

Mr. Rathbone, you are a man after my own heart. And let me say that the scandals, missprints, lies, and other such subjects are in the Odyssey Tattler. A real newspaper. Not a one article paper about yours truely.

Excuse me? I assure you my paper is factual, besides me being good friends with Kermit. Well, actually, in a sense I am. ;)

Everything else about the Scribbler in the article is 100% true! Goodness mellow, sometimes I have no idea what you are talking about.
