After Homer realizes he's missed out on the computer revolution, he buys the nicest model a fifth mortgage can buy. However, when his web site fails to attract any attention, Homer begins calling himself Mr. X and becomes Springfield's number one source for dubious news and questionable scandals. His first scoop reveals Mayor Quimby's secret pool and his second brings down Apu's phony donut cartel. After winning the Pulitzer Prize for his journalistic dynamite, however, Mr. X's popularity wanes. In a desperate attempt to rekindle interest, Homer starts really making up the news. But when he accidentally stumbles upon a dangerous secret, he finds himself kept prisoner on a strange island occupied by other prisoners. Homer's best attempts to get back home only land the entire family on the island.
