Storyline

DJ is excited to be appointed editor of her school's newspaper, but is put in an awkward position when Kimmy expects favoritism. When Kimmy's writing isn't up to par, DJ fires her, inspiring the former to start an independent gossip newsletter. Michelle annoys Stephanie by echoing her every word. Jesse and Joey are hired to shoot a new commercial for 'Wake Up San Francisco', but a rivalry between Danny and Becky over on-screen presence makes filming uncomfortable. Written by Melissa

The One With The Newspaper...
10 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I thought this episode was okay. It wasn't great, but I enjoy it and it's definitely worth a watch. I felt like D.J. was completely in the right. Kimmy shouldn't have acted that way.

In this episode, D.J. is thrilled when she is appointed the new editor of her school's newspaper. But Kimmy expects favoritism. And unfortunately, Kimmy can't write as well as needed to be accepted to the newspaper. Which make her very mad at D.J., after she fires her. Kimmy then decides to start her own gossip newsletter. Meanwhile, Michelle aggravates Stephanie by repeating every word she says. And Jesse and Joey are hired to make a commercial for "Wake Up, San Francisco".

Overall, I give this episode a 6 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Good.
