Jack Ryder is a news anchor for the Gotham City News channel. As the game progresses, Ryder will report the events of the story in the "public's eye" and will react to some decisions made by Bruce Wayne, either as his civilian identity or as the Batman.
Episode One: Realm of ShadowsEdit
NOTICE: The events described impacted by the player's decisions. This is only a brief summary of the events that take place. Decisions made and their impacts will be show either in italics if a single decision affects the subject of the article or tabs if both decisions affect it.
After a fight between Batman and a group of mercenaries, Ryder reported the encounter on the station and commented, incorrectly, that all stolen items had been accounted for. He also reported on a fire at the Ace Chemicals building and the mayoral campaigns for both Hamilton Hill and Harvey Dent.
The next night, he reported the arrest of Carmine Falcone, thanks to the assistance of Batman and evidence of his criminal activities, released either by Lt. James Gordon or Vicki Vale. He also reported on alleged allegations of Thomas Wayne's links to organized crime and the replies given by Bruce.
Episode Two: Children of ArkhamEdit
Following the Children of Arkham's attack on the Mayoral Debate between Hill and Dent, Ryder reported on the attack and the release of footage showing Thomas Wayne committing Esther Cobblepot to Arkham Asylum. His report completely destroyed the Wayne family's reputation and later drove Wayne Enterprises to replace Bruce with someone else.
