    That's what PE post calls new opening for ``mobile journalist'' who'll write, shoot video and still shots and sell fish tacos... Sounds like an intriguing experiment. Hats off to PE for imaginative thinking, I say.

    Not that imaginative. Gannett's been doing it for several years. Pretty sure the basic model is pay the reporter less than a normal reporter, and require him to put thousands of miles on his own car, with shitty reimbursement.

    I'm all for jacks- and jills-of-all-trades in any field (I consider versatility to be among my strongest traits in the workplace), but this is just asking for mediocrity.

    One expert in reporting/writing and one expert in photo/video > three "mojos" who aren't great at anything.

    Mobile Journalists? That's what they were called at my old paper. The old bureau folks, the one's who didn't live in the area.

    This critter has existed for years. It's called a "small weekly sports editor."

    Yep. At my former paper, a backpack with a laptop and videocamera was called a "mojo pack." Shit you not.
  11. Mojo Pack has great potential as a sexual euphemism.

    Also sounds like the fan club for Mojo Nixon.
