Stuff Journalists Like

Stuff Journalists Like is a self-explanatory website about the favorite things of modern muckrackers and media types, in the style of Stuff White People Like.

A couple of gems:

"#75 Low Pay.

Journalists like to think of themselves as the regular working man/woman. Journalist like to kick the same dust as regular folks. Yes there are the millionaire reporters. But those are as rare as readers who subscribe to more than one newspaper. But for the journalists who are not Brian Williams or Rick Reilly, it's the reality of living paycheck to paycheck. 

When selecting a career, journalists knew they would make sacrifices: long hours, working holidays and low pay.

When young journalism students ask veteran journalists for advice, virtually all veterans reply with "go to business school."
Touché. Others include #159 throwing shoes, #17 breaking news, and #32 press passes

Yes, yes, it's YET ANOTHER one of those "Stuff X People Like" sites,  and the tone is photocopied, but it's well done, so A-.
