Synopsis:
With circulation and revenue down, Perry has to deal with the effects of "new media", specifically a blog. That blog accuses the Planet of using funds to get interviews with Superman, and an improper relationship between him and Lois. Perry has a young staffer infiltrate the staff to get more info, and then asks for a meeting. The blogger discusses the finances, which Perry admits is his personal donations to keep staff, and shows a photo with Lois and Superman kissing. But Sandeep finds the original of the photo, from a club flyer that didn't have those two on it; it was photo-manipulated.
