Tonight, I ...

Tonight, I ...

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Thu Jul 28, 2016 6:11 am

led a meeting in which I believe I managed to get a group of five grizzled sportswriters to embrace the new order of the news media -- digital first, nobody cares who we are, let's just make our content as awesome as can be and hopefully win readers over.

How did that make me feel?

You're being a real D-word right now, you know it? Smile

I convinced them that nobody cares what company we work for, they just want good content.

Added to the world? I didn't give birth to them, dickbarge. As I stated in my post, these guys are experienced sportswriters.

So they're not going to get much of a chance to spread their regressive propaganda, writing about teenage football players Laughing

No need to give birth but as stated brainwash

What the above really says by you is the following.

"These guys are inexperinced regressives, who this is going to be their first chance to spread the regressive propaganda, writing about teenagers submitting to the will of Allah"

Ah, that makes me yearn for the good old days when a young reporter on his bicycle and with a great scoop in his notebook - something like an interview with the man who had just won the darts cup at Ye Olde Frogge & Nightgown pub - would ride around frantically searching for a one of those old red phone boxes, only to find that (a) some bastard had nicked the handset, (b) that it was being used as a public lavatory, (c) some dickhead had parked his van so close to it that you couldn't open the door or (d) it contained three giggling teenage girls with beehive hairdo's and micro skirts taking turns to chat to their boyfriends.

And then, after he had found one empty and actually working, realising that he didn't have the necessary two old pennies the size of saucepan lids in order to press button B to connect him with the newsdesk.

Digital? Pah!

You know, Islam has come up exactly once in the thousands of articles I've written. A coach was praising his basketball player's work ethic, and added as a side note that it was even more impressive since he was fasting for Ramadan at the time.

How did that make me feel?
Mighty REAL! ( by sylvester)

There are two tribes of sportswriters -
Retired sportsmen who take up journalism.
And Professional journalists who  decide to specialise in sports writing.
They come from opposite ends and sort of meet in the middle. They complement each other well.
Good luck with the project, hope it soars!
