    We haven't all done that. I never have.

    I typically charge $125/assignment which includes story and photos.
    I'll agree to do it for a slight discount if it's an event I'm going to be attending anyway.

    Most ridiculous offer I had was for an out-of-town football game ... $20 story and photos. Um, no thanks. That doesn't pay my gas to the field and back.

    I'm talking about when you're working the desk and needing more than an AP short to fill the hole you have for a story, so you add information from the school release/web site.
