The real-life controversy surrounding a "private" memo issued by a certain Today Show anchorman which dissed a certain Today Show weatherman is the obvious inspiration for this episode. To get a few gripes off her chest, Murphy (Candice Bergen) pens a personal memo on her computer in which she harshly criticizes her coworkers at "FYI." Unfortunately, the memo falls into the hands of Lewis Kletter (Judd Trichter), a student at Walt Whitman Junior High--and an accomplished computer hacker. Now Murphy must act quickly to prevent aspiring journalist Lewis from printing the memo in his school paper!
