Lisa: [hugs Homer] Oh, dad. This is so sweet. But I’ve learned that one little paper can’t make a difference in this world. [is hit in the head with a rolled-up newspaper] The Barney Bugle?
Barney: Lisa, you made me realize the importance of free and independent media. So I printed my own paper! Although it’s mostly culled from wire services. *belch*
Lenny: Hey, who wants a copy of the Lenny Saver?
Lisa: You have a newspaper too?
Lenny: Well, I was reading the Homer Times about what you did for us, and I thought that maybe I should start asking my own questions. You know… find out the truth about things. [unrolls paper, which says: “The Truth About Carl: He’s Great!”] [wipes tear] It had to be told.
Willie: Check out the Willie World News! I reviewed the new tractors. They’re all shite!
Homer: See Lisa, instead of one big-shot controlling all the media, now there’s a thousand freaks xeroxing their worthless opinions.
Lisa: I couldn’t be prouder.
