The counterpart to the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil is an absurdly elaborate school paper with production values and writing quality that real commercial newspapers would envy. The activities of the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil and other very popular students will be chronicled in minute detail by the {{school newspaper newshound}}s that staff the paper, all of whom have very serious aspirations to a career in Journalism. Quite often they will also report about events around the city or town that the story is set in. Major plot points will be revealed [[TVNeverLies -- or distorted! --]] [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver on the front page]] of the school newspaper. A few schools even have radio and/or television programs run by a "broadcasting club".

Added DiffLines:

* A variant in ''Renegadepress.com'', and a rather justified variant; the eponymous website, an e-zine, is written by the main students from their school, to their school, about their daily experiences.

* Ivan Bezdomny in ''TheWotch'', overlapping with IntrepidReporter. It ends badly for, [[PronounTrouble um...]] [[GenderBender Bezdomny]].
** The name is a direct reference to ''TheMasterAndMargarita'', whose Bezdomny is a sort-of college age version of this.

Added DiffLines:

* Parker of ''Webcomic/ScalieSchoolie'' is a particularly unscrupulous example. The arc in which she's introduced revolves entirely around her lying for the highest bidder and slandering students with reckless abandon.

* The Broadcasting Club in ''MarmaladeBoy''. Specially Furutachi-sempai, who once ''seriously'' screws up by [[spoiler: taking pics of Miki and Yuu's recently re-married parents]]. To his credit, he immediately regretted the mess he had caused and [[spoiler: not only alerted the parents when Miki and Yuu were harassed by a SadistTeacher, but managed to bring them to the school so they would give their own testimony, leading the parents to pull a CrowningMomentOfAwesome where they pwn said teacher.]]

* Angie in the movie adaptation of ''DiaryOfAWimpyKid''.
* ''{{Hamlet 2}}'' treats the school paper reviews of the drama club productions very seriously. Although that's more of a testament to main characters quirkiness than a universal opinion.
