Fun moments in journalism

It’s every journalist’s dream to call out uncooperative and unhelpful “sources.” Hats off to whoever let this go to print. Photo by Jeannine LeJeune.

Tonight, an old coworker posted this Poynter article on his Facebook.

Needless to say, I got a total kick out of this, as I’m sure all journalists would because there is nothing worse than working on deadline and having nobody get back to you. I’m not a sports reporter, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to print something similar.

According to the article, Louisiana journalist Jeannine LeJeune tweeted this photo (above) after reading that lovely line in her morning paper.

Can I just say that whoever printed this is my hero?

In other news, I discovered this video on YouTube tonight:

Now, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here, but I’ve made it no secret that Brian Williams is my anchorman crush. This just makes my crush deepen as it proves that all journalists — even the big broadcasters — like free food. It’s nice to see even they’re human.
