    Just wondering if any of you fine folks here have heard of this Web site and what your take on it is....they were advertising on CraigsList and I'm considering applying to see how that might go....

    Based on this:


    I don't think you really have to apply. Just blog away to your citizen journalist's content.

    Agreed. On their home page sits a story written by someone or something named ``Mad Love'' claiming that the Dodgers have signed Manny Ramirez. No sourcing, no links to the actual reporters with real sounding names that actually reported the story. And, well, it's kinda right. Nothing has been signed. There's just a meeting in LA on Wednesday morning. But Mad Love is close enough I guess.

    That way you can call the Web site whatever you want.
     
  7. It's a joke, and yet the fans on school message boards love them. Oh, and they're looking for "editors" now. No pay, of course, but you do it for the fun of it.

    I'm just amazed at all of the journalism students who write on these sites with hopes that it will land them a big gig.
     
  9. Yeah. I know a lot of sports editors are looking for the next effing stud on bleacherreport.com.
