Dysfunctional reporters converging on a sleepy small town,
expecting "no news," become consumed by an avalanche of events that
defies their understanding. Sometimes gruesome local traditions
draw local outrage when reported. Past secrets are not talked
about. Crimes become deeply personal for the entire community.
Reporters grapple with their emotions in trying to understand it
all, while also enduring public contempt for the paper. The
alcoholic editor misses typo after typo, which sinks stories into
absurdity and makes the paper a laughingstock; hence the nickname,
The town itself is a victim of atrophy. Store after store goes
under and the arrival of corporate-owned business spells the death
of Main Street. The paper becomes such a victim, becoming a
shopper. The reporters move elsewhere.
