The Paper: My Rooted Connection with Amanda Lorber


Obnoxious? Yes. Over dramatic? A complete diva. A little bit of a loon? Definitely. But then I guess, so am I. You can only really understand the cooky, but uber driven mind of Amanda Lorber if you have had the experience of being the editor-in-chief of your high school or college newspaper.

For reality tv, MTV's The Paper has, for the most part, been spot on. The flaming homosexual business manager, stick-in-the-mud sports editor turned managing editor, and petite, nice to your face bitch to your back news editor, are all too familiar, rehashing repressed memories from my days on the college newspaper.

While there were several times Lorber lost control of her team and was a bit abrasive (then again could anyone else do a better job at 17?), overall she handled the pressure of bossing around her peers pretty well. Maybe MTV didn't always catch her at her best (singing on the top of her lungs and talking to her rat terrier), but here is a girl who knows what she wants in life and is not afraid to go after it. For that, I applaud her, and the other editors of The Circuit who are more dedicated and hard working then most people are at their real jobs. Hell, Adam sold more ads for one issue than my college newspaper did in a year.

It is difficult drawing the line between boss and friend at any age. Throw high school students in a class room and ask one of them to be in charge, inevitably there is bound to be chaos and the making for fabulous tv. The school newspaper has a way of taring people apart just as much as it has the power to form lasting bonds.

As the season drew to a close Monday night, with the zealous Lober getting accepted to her dream school NYU, one can only wonder what's in store next for the teen on her path to becoming a journalist (I smell sequel).
