It was bound to happen. With the success of websites like Stuff White People Like, it is now journalists’ turn to be dissected.

I introduce you to Stuff Journalists Like, which is right on target in the satire department.

From their latest entry:

For a journalist, there are a few things to look forward to. There’s the end of an election. The closing of a trial and of course when the town’s annual rodeo/festival/art show is finally over. After a long day of grilling public officials, dredging through public records, chasing ambulances and writing 25-inch stories, journalists like to relax with a tall cold one.

The old stereotype of the curmudgeon journalist with a bottle of whiskey in his desk is alive and well today because journalists like to drink.

To report the news is to be a journalist. Same goes for drinking. Drinking is so much a part of a journalist’s life that J-schools nearly made it part of the curriculum but instead choose copy editing. And journalism has suffered ever since.

With as much gloom and doom we keep hearing about traditional media, it’s best for those waiting on what’s going to happen next to have a sense of humor about ourselves.
