I'm as surprised as anyone else! Megan Fox's April is extremely focused on her career and exposing corruption, as she explains what she found to Goldberg's Thompson and her roommate Taylor.

One could argue that the reporting is made up of the activities of men, since the Turtles are assumed to be male and the Foot Clan is mostly male, but the Foot's head of operations is a woman, Karai, and there's nothing about relationships, looks, or any kind of male-worship throughout the conversations.

Of note here is a bold change in the news chief from previous incarnations of the show - the chief is usually an older white man, and Whoopi does extremely well at reclaiming the character as an older black woman.
