One thing I didn't really delve all that deeply into, though, was the troubles of the journalism industry, especially print journalism. The closest I came to being at all negative about the journalism industry was when I said, partly in response to a question about how much I made as a News Assistant at the Journal: "I wouldn't discourage any of you from going into journalism, but you just need to be prepared to make some sacrifices."
If I had been more brutally honest with those kids, though...this might be what I would have said to them:
Maybe this means I myself am negative and bitter, but I really do hope that no one going into college to study journalism is as cluelessly idealistic as that light-skinned bear.
And of course, the deadpan computerized voices make this bitter pill even funnier to watch. Killer punchline, too.
Whoever you are, BrooklynLee: Hats off to you!
