Wow. They took the good Cat Grant character they introduced last season and turned her into a one-dimensional idiot, all to make Lois look good and prop up CLois. Way to go, writers.
"Lois Lane is the best crime reporter this paper ever hard...offcamera."
Lois was such a great crime reporter that she tried to manufacture a story about a fake superhero to try to get to the Blur.
SV Lois can't hold a candle to Chloe in any department.
And of course, now Clark notices Chloe is gone. Selfish douche.
