This is a funny site that one of the editors at the Pitt News found: Overheard In the Newsroom
A few of my favorites…
Editor to young Intern: “We’re short on news today. I want you to go down Main Street and if more than 3 homeless people ask you for money, write something on the homelessness issue in this city.”
Reporter responding to e-mail announcing an upcoming technology upgrade: “Good, we’re only six years behind now.
Editor: “Did you see this? A breast-feeding mother fell asleep and smothered her 4-year-old child.”
Photographer: “That’s how I want to go.”
