  •  How about a few jobs? (0+ / 0-)

    With over 8% unemployment, there are a few people at the Post who are keeping qualified folks from making a living, & would better serve society on the unemployment line. These include:
    * The reporter. "Hey, I just pulled this identification out of my butt. So what harm is that?"
    * The editor: "I should make the reporter explain why this identification is valid, but we all know it's one of those brown-skinned people & no one really cares about them. Besides, if it bleeds it leads regardless if it's true."
    * The newspaper counsel: "My job is to keep the paper from being sued, & the minute I saw the front page I should have screamed bloody murder for them to pull every copy printed back, but I'm only paid a six-figure salary & you get what you pay for."

    BTW, I had a peek at the NYP website, & no one is identified as holding the last two jobs. I guess only little people are held responsible for screw-ups.
