Job Opening at the Times Picayune!

16 Jun

Holy crap! Just an hour or two after I posted this, a big opportunity opened up!  Nola.com has posted a job listing for a new Saints beat writer.

Must be proficient in retweeting and demeaning silly, biased Saints fans who don’t know that the NFL always tells the truth.  They “require” a journalism degree and three years of experience, but don’t worry about that – how hard can it be?  I already sent in my application.  I’ll let you all know when they call me back.

For the record, I’m not suggesting that everyone reading this submits their own applications, or tweets the screen shots to @angrywhodat.  I’m also not saying that I’ll retweet the good ones or post them here for your amusement.  That would be very rude to the HR people.  Don’t do that.

    So who was it who got kicked to the curb? Does he share initials with “Journalism Degree”?

      @himself-
      If you’re referring to Jim Derry, my brother-in-law, yes he got canned… hahaha…. but he ain’t laughing.
      And neither should Jeff Duncan.

      Himself, actually, I haven’t heard of anyone being fired. My understanding is that Jeff Duncan has moved to “general sports” or something to that effect, leaving the beat job open. I honestly don’t have a clue if that’s a promotion or demotion (or neither).

        I think “general sports” qualifies as the curb.

        Angry one-
        Jim Derry (my bro-in-law) worked for the Times Pic for 21-years and got his walking papers… so a ‘JD’ did get fired.
        Fuck ‘em.
