It takes balls to eat animal penis

    Two reporters from Tribune Media sent this gem via video blog on their experience at a local Bejing restaurant. Is this really journalism?

    I wasn't sure if it was journalism either when it came out a couple of weeks ago on the board.

    Cut the rookie some slack, FDP. It's not every day you see a link with "beijingpenis" in the address.

    Didn't Plaschke already do this bit?

    Nice production quality.

    More evidence that it takes more than a camera to do video.

    Exactly. The guy's first post is a topic starter, plus it works the word penis into the title. That's worth something.

    Has to put him in pretty rare company: posters whose very first post was a topic starter. Sort of like hitting a homer in your first major league at bat. Even if this might just be a long foul in this particular instance.

    It's infotainment, what many of today's newspapers are moving toward.

    See Zell, Sam, and crumbling of the industry.

    Nice d_b, Rudy. Kirk's right. Step back in the box and have another hack. You'll be fine.

    Guess these guys have never heard of prairie oysters.

    I can overlook the d_b.

    I don't really think this belongs on the journalism board, though, the reporters involved notwithstanding.
