Our Sister Outlet

A lot of reporters come up through the New York Post because, well, there aren't any other journalism jobs and they do some real journalism, especially with local New York stuff. You can probably work there and do real journalism, if a bit tabloidy, and not feel like you've personally done a bad thing.

But of course the real job is to lend credibility to a corrupt enterprise, to continue to lend credibility when, for example, a reporter whose name rhymes with Haggie Maberman moves onto bigger and better things but still can be relied on to promote and defend her prior employer.
