Message of the Day – A Cartoon — 6 Comments

  1. I question the “trained in gathering news” portion.

    I’ve examined the journalism curriculum at several colleges and there are zero courses on governmental accounting or government at all.

    Basically, “reporters” get out of school having learned how to write, but not having been taught anything about what to write about.

    Still, a humorous and sad commentary.

    I’m glad you can poke fun at yourself, Cal. Meow!

  2. Then, in the interests of better newsgathering, I suggest making a donation to the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism at Columbia University.

  3. I think that guy typing on the computer in the second panel is that cat molesting dingbat that post on here.

  4. Reporters know very little about property taxes as well.

    I remember tutoring a Tribune reporter on the subject.

    There were others.
