Be a Journalist!

Have you ever wanted to be a paid, full-time journalist? No, you can’t have our jobs here at the Ping (our boss would hand our butts to us on a silver platter), but you can be a Virtual Journalist (via PCJM). You graduate from college as a bright-eyed stick figure with a reporter’s hat and jump right into the working world at a local paper. From your first fluff piece to shocking exposes, Virtual Journlist lets you experience all the excitement of being a news reporter without any of the smoke or coffee stains!

Alright, maybe it’s not that good, but it’s kinda’ cute. Kinda’.

I thought in this age of decentralized communications and the blog that we were all journalists now. Hell, if Drudge can make a living at it anybody can.

Bloggers are the only way to get something other than the corporate media line. The Trent Lott story would never have had the impact it did if a few bloggers hadn't kept it alive.

*But* - bloggers need to be upfront about who and what they are. My mom thinks the Drudge Report is just a news-clipping service, and can't see its obvious slant.

Does ping have a college

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
