"How are we gonna get our cutie marks in newspaper?"
"Uh oh, that's Granny Smith."
We can always give this idea a chance.
Sweetie Belle is pretty skeptical about Scootaloo's idea.
That's one way to recycle...
At least four kinds of adorable.
Looking and hoping while being adorable in the process.
Not a very sturdy boat material.
Sweetie Belle doesn't look too thrilled with the idea.
enjoys her friends' misunderstood circumstance.
Why is she laughing at us?
Happy fillies leave the school.
We can get our cutie marks in journalism.

"...isn't it worth a little grief?"
"C'mon! Let's go get these marks!"
Busy sewing at the moment.
Rarity noticing Sweetie Belle.
Sweetie Belle is unknowingly giving Rarity some great ideas.
He-he I know Sweetie Belle won't like this.

Don't worry, Apple Bloom. We all know that feeling.
The reporters have arrived.
J. Jonah Jamareson!
Diamond Tiara obviously doesn't like something.
You three are going to ruin my reputation with these so-called news!
We meant well, Diamond Tiara honest.
"...and it better be juicy!"
Hey, that's Derpy's shtick!
Get outta town! And stay out!
"You don't even wanna know what I had to sit through."
"Take a few pictures of this..."
"Then meet me during lunch."
Oh, just me taking this picture.
"Girls, I have our story!"
"Snips and Snails in Bubble Gum Fails!"
Two fillies enjoy reading the Foal Free Press.

"Columns about ponies and their private lives."
"And I loved the way you signed it!"
"Gabby Gums! That was a stroke of genius!"

Brainstorming and boredom.
There has to be something juicy.
Snips and Snails are old news.

It was funny the first time, boys...

Aren't ladies supposed to watch where they step?
"Oh, Sweetie Belle... Was she raised..."
Curiosity is getting the best of Rarity.
I know what Rarity is thinking.
I shouldn't do it, it's unladylike

Fascinated by the latest news in the Foal Free Press.
Giggling at what she's reading.
Sweetie Belle, coming downstairs to see what Rarity's laughing about.
Saddlebag? No, there's no saddlebag behind my back.
I'm smarter then that, Rarity!
So, they can be flicked off like light switches.
Did you really have to do that?
Aha! Snooping as usual, I see!
But come on Sweetie, lighten up.
"This Gabby Gums column is so funny!"
"You wouldn't mind if I showed this to my friends, would you?"

Putting curlers in Twilight's tail.
Getting her highlights touched up
It's amazing how they get a full CMYK sheet from just one trip through that dinky little press.
What could Applejack be lying about.
Not even her majesty Princess Celestia is safe from Gabby-Gums.
Girls, you gotta read this.
This has to be the greatest issue yet.
Mayor having...pink hair?
Spa treatments! (And apparently waterproof newsprint.)
"How awesome it is to get your name in the paper?"
Hooficures are a necessary part of proper standards of beauty.
Rainbow Dash does not know why she's doing this.

Are both of them looking at the camera?
"My sister would never associate with someone as beastly as Gabby-Gums!"
Rarity, has full faith in Sweetie Belle's innocence.
I didn't say it like that.
"She's the most innocent,..."
Oh, I guess Rarity found her diary in the most unexpected place.
"How can my own sister be..."
I'm coming for you, Sweetie Belle.
"Gasp! You know!? How did you find out!?"
"The gilded pages of your betrayal!"
"For all the world to read!"
"No." In a sad Sweetie Belle tone.
"I don't care about feelings!"
Exactly what I wanted to hear.
..you may not want to quit after all!"
Gasp! We're being black mailed!

"Well done, Diamond Tiara. You've averted yet another crisis with your amazing diplomatic skills."
Derpy's gonna be mad at you, Diamond Tiara.
"Ooh, they're not gonna get away with this!"
"They messed with the wrong pony!"
Rainbow Dash, you monster!
Rainbow Dash hears a voice that makes her stop to take a look at the CMC.
These three little fillies: Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom, and Scootaloo.
That is one literate Lagomorph.
You almost want to feel sorry for her.
"I'm sorry, Diamond Tiara, I have to strip you of your title!"
Meet our new Editor-in-chief!
