    one synopsis I read had it being an Olberman-style show. Screw that. Set it in some small-town daily or small market TV station where people are working 60 hour weeks for barely over minimum wage.

    I remember when the Gawker style of writing was more appropriate ...

    well ...

    uh ...

    nowhere.

    There's nothing wrong with Magary's writing. He could work at any newspaper in the country.

    Holy shit.

    You may be right, once he censors himself on every sentence.

    Taken out of the Funbag/Jamboroo milieu, a very little bit of Mr. Magary's IN YOUR FACE FUCKING COMIC MANIA can go a very long way.

    You just talked about censoring yourself in the same post as you said "shit."

    Holy fuck.

    Was there a few curse words in Magary's post? Yes. But the language helped get his point across in a way that would have been hard to do without it.

    For him, maybe. Others know bigger words.

    The point doesn't change that any newspaper he applies to will give him a job without even reading other applicants.
