Debut: Rumours
Type: Student newspaper (Used as a gossip rag)
Head: Sue Sylvester
Institution: William McKinley High School
Status: Active

The Muckraker is the school newspaper at William McKinley High School. It was defunct for two years due to lack of interest, but Sue Sylvester revives the newspaper as a gossip rag.

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."

Sue revives the newspaper with specially selected staff. Her main goal is to print inflammatory blind items about the Glee Club in order to cause chaos in the club. It publishes interviews with many students and staff members, including Will Schuester.

A critic from the Muckraker 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.

  • Three other unknown members appear when Sue is briefing them in Rumours, sat behind Brittany and Jacob.
  • Becky does not act as a journalist, but sells the newspaper in the corridors.
