News broke yesterday of massive layoffs at CBS news outlets. That left those without job and even those with a job very angry.
Their anger is partly fueled by the Internet, which has forced newspapers and television networks to reinvent themselves with painful consequences for their staffs.
Where does one go to vent such anger? Why the internet of course www.angryjournalist.com
Ironic isn't it? The website contains gripes ranging from existential musings about one's career to expletive-laced diatribes that trigger heated exchanges.
The website was created by a former journalist who cut short his young career in the news business to work in political communications in Illinois. Martinez, who now works as a communications specialist for the Illinois Senate Republican Caucus, is happy to have left journalism, earning more money and more vacation in a better working environment.
