The Muckraker is the school newspaper at William McKinley High School. It was defunct for two years due to lack of interest, but in the episode Rumours, Sue Sylvester revives the newspaper as a gossip rag. Her main goal is to print inflammatory blind items about the Glee Club in order to cause chaos in the club. They interviewed many students and staff members, including Will Schuester. The Muckraker is proven to be still active in Glease, where a critic shows up to the school's production of "Grease" in order to write a review. Although the club is initially worried, since the critic is feared for writing harsh reviews, they end up being rated positively.
The Muckraker's lack of concern with traditional fact-based news reporting is encapsulated in its motto: "If I heard it, it's probably true or something."
- Three other unknown members appear when Sue is briefing them in Rumours, (they sit behind Brittany and Jacob)
- Becky does not do any journalism but sells it in the corridors.
