Snapper’s first assignment to Kara is a teaching moment: one he considers vital needs if she wants to be a journalist. It seems simple, write about L-Corp’s new green initiative, get a few quotes, write something semi-decent. But as Kara starts to dig in, she finds herself at the center of L-Corp’s new CEO’s attention…for better or for worse.
Snapper Carr’s first assignment for Kara is memorizing the Associated Press’s Style Guide. Kara does it in a night and tells him so the next morning. She’s feeling a bit proud of herself. He barely even looks at her as he shoves a copy editing test into her hand and tells her she’d better not make a mistake.
Kara does the test against the wall of the investigative team offices, maybe using just a bit of her super speed to write faster as her wrist is cramping. She does the test in full view of these grizzled, seasoned journalists, smiling all the while. She’s going to prove it to them. She can write. She knows she can. She can do this job.
He reads though her responses and sets the paper aside. “So you can memorize things.”
