This issue Superman tackles yellow journalism. The Morning Herald is the newest paper in town and it is getting all the scoops. Its also running people's private information and even blackmailing people. They snare a senator by doping him and posing him with the alluring Trixie, and reporter Gene Powers steps in and shakes them down. 

Sleazy as all get out and rather satisfying when Superman slaps them around.
