And Now For More Boston Globe Bashing - XXXVI

In terms of career choice, newspaper reporters have chosen...poorly:
NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - A new survey of the best and worst jobs in the country has declared that being a newspaper reporter is the worst career you could be pursuing.

CareerCast just published its Worst Jobs of 2016 list.

It cited fewer job prospects because of publications going out of business and declining ad revenue providing less money for decent salaries.

It is the third year in a row that a newpaper reporter ranked as the worst job. Being a broadcaster didn't fare much better. It came in third worst on the list.
Let's have some cheese with that whine, shall we?
“The news business has changed drastically over the years, and not in a good way,” says former Broadcaster Ann Baldwin, president of Baldwin Media PR in New Britain, Connecticut. “When people ask me if I miss it, I tell them ‘I feel as if I jumped off of a sinking ship.’”
Just like Bruce Mo## (AKA 'Objective'Bruce, a Globe rumpswab commenter here at DSW) did back in 2008, when he took the second major buyout offered by the Globe to get rid of the deadwood save on overhead costs.
