Mitchell becomes a journalist for the school newspaper and decides it is easier to simply make stories up, rather than actually look for real ones.

When the ink in the printing press is replaced with an ancient vial of ink, it causes all of Mitchell's outrageous news stories to come true. It's all insane, tabloidy, sensationalist fun until one of his stories backfires, the school begins to crumble and school custodian Murdoch gets fired.

A rare dose of guilt sets Mitchell, Becky and Templeton on the track to help the man who has helped them so much before. As well as saving the school from imminent destruction.
