Journalism reality

I love this: The most realistic memo a newspaper could ever send about its latest reorg, kind of in MadLibs format. (Via Gail Pennington on Twitter.)


Here's just a sampling:

"After protracted internal discussions, we have determined that those filling the “Comment” sections in our online edition must (be brought to justice; limit their use of body-part references; stop calling our reporters and columnists “douche bags”).

Unless the blogosphere gets really upset, those commenting on our online content will now be required to (identify themselves by something other than a screen name; seek psychological counseling; learn to spell)."
