M's Viewing Habits Hurt Everyone

Here is the description of Campus Confidential from ABCfamily.net:

Violet (Carlson Romano) is in for the shock of her life when she goes from urban to suburban with her mom (Sagal) and finds a drastic difference between schools. Not only is there a popular crowd, but even the teachers show blatant favoritism. With her acerbic wit and acute sense of social justice, Violet decides to take matters into her own hands and use her first amendment right by starting a school tabloid with her new friend Cornelia (Keri Lynn Pratt, “Jack & Bobby”) exposing the embarrassing secrets of the popular kids that rule the school. Along the way she mistakenly publishes information on her only crush (Teddy Dunn, “Veronica Mars”), and soon finds out that the pen is mightier than the sword. Now Violet must try to heal the deep wounds she has cast.

I hope everyone learns a valuable lesson in the end. This seems to me to be less of a movie of the week and more of a pointed social commentary.

Forecasted High Point: Me preventing this from Tivoing

Forecasted Low Point: Listening to M complain about me stopping it from Tivoing. You have no idea how annoying this is going to be.
