Apparently things at the Daily Paper are more unsettled than we previously thought.
We all know media wonks love to “tell all” and tip each other on stories they either are too lazy to write or don’t want their names on…it cuts the chances of landing one of those cushy government jobs if you bash the politicos and bureaucrats.
Well, there is now an insider web site called WORKINGPRESSTOO which has a less than friendly approach to the media. The blog is particularly unkind to the Daily Paper and obviously has staffers feeding info from within. The GUARDIAN “dope reporter” award for silly mistakes and clichés pales in comparison.
Reporters never reveal their sources, so it will be great fun to hear of any witch hunts in the newsroom attempting to identify the author or authors of the new blog. One of our sources tells us based on some e-mail traffic a certain senator’s office may be contributing to the bad news blog.
Since we have a lot of media and government readers we figured it was worth informing folks about the new blog which was started last month. Don’t forget to offer good tips to the GUARDIAN as well.
