Newsman Turns Hobo Blogger

Special thanks to so many readers sending this link our way . . . It's a great read for those with a subscription and maybe just a bit of motivation to start charging readers something for the pleasure of our company. More likely, this is a signal that "journalist" isn't really an occupation anymore in much the same way there aren't any elevator operators and very few streetwalkers worth the money in the digital era.

Newspaper's Top Editor Is Now a 'Homeless' Blogger

A 54-year-old journalist lost his job running an Indiana newspaper, as well as the apartment that went with it. He moved to a Motel 6. He was laid off on April 24. A week later he was living in a Motel 6.

7:40 -Yeah, that's the first thing I think when someone loses their job and hits financial straits. You still got that iPhone, still getting take out.

You're an insufferable asshole.

Generally, reporters can't get rich through corruption like politicians.

If he's living in a Motel 6 then he's not homeless. He's just a renter.

Laid off journalist was preaching Communism and diatribes against middle America values alienating his potential customer base.

The journalist received his just rewards for being a hater of Christians.

Star editors and journalists.

I like ALL of these comments because they terrify the people at The Star.

God's wrath on journalists attacking Christians. Sodom and Gommarah media receives a visit.

^^^^And yet your cry is the voice of those who lack talent and resent those who do. Weird.

Guy ain't starving, obviously.

^^^ That comment's dumb. He's obviously eating cheap junk food. It's less expensive but bloats and damages you. Underneath the sugar bloat the guy is probably still undernourished.

Bloat is the new sign of poor people.
