It's ethics vs. ratings when the staff of "FYI" decide to fight fire with fire in their ongoing battle with tabloid talk-show reporter Jerry Gold. Having long disdained Gold's fondness for sensationalism, Murphy (Candice Bergen) and Jim (Charles Kimbrough) begin to prepare a serious, dignified piece on the homeless. Unfortunately, the spectre of sensationalism rears its ugly head when, in their desperation to get viewers to watch their story, Murphy and Jim agree to precede the piece with a debate between housewives and hookers. What follows is on-the-air donnybrook, the likes of which has seldom been seen outside the realm of Geraldo Rivera and Jerry Springer!
