FJOTD: Kermit The Frog

Hi all! Today’s Fictional Journalist of the Day is our first one of the nonhuman sort. His name? Kermit the Frog! He’s had a wonderful, wonderful career with Sesame Street News and in our opinion, is probably one of the best frog reporters ever!

It's not easy being green.. and a reporter!

More on Kermit after the jump! First, our links:

Pulitzers are out! Washington Post grabs six, and the NY Times takes home two. (Pulitzer.org)

CBS is thinking of using CNN while reporting… is that lazy or economical? (NY Times)

Don’t pay to learn how to be an entrepreneurial journalist, it’s all online! (Be Successful News)

And though it cost her her integrity, her job, her reputation, her… let’s just say it was a heavy price. The fact is she paid it, willingly. Anything to get the story. More on her later. Yes, there’s more.

Now, onto today’s links!

– Newsmagazines are getting makers over shedding the extra weight. (WSJ via Romenesko)

– No March Madness money for the LA Times staff, which basically means there’s no real madness. So essentially it’s just March. Or it was March, we guess. (The Big Lead)

– If you can’t beat ’em…. Also, we swear we’re not stalking her. Honest. (Media Bistro)

– This is kind of pathetic. Actually, on second thought, not kind of. Completely. (The Bad and Ugly)

– Newspapers aren’t the only ones cutting jobs. Misery loves company? (NY Times) Continue reading
