    Not much of a serious post, just some fodder for others to comment on.

    That's a heck of a lot of responsibilities for someone they won't pay as a full-timer.

    That right there will take 40+ hours to do.

    Get somebody else to do that shit.

    All that on a part-time basis? Sure, if you cover one high school, maybe.

    And then if you add the "you'll also be our bitch for news stories and secretarial duties," you're talking about the duties for at least 2 1/2 positions on a "part-time" basis. WTF?

    The sad thing is they'll probably find some sucker willing to do those things for part-time pay (presumably with no health insurance or other benefits either) who wants to get into this business.
