    Wow. Who says you can’t make money as a journalist?

      Yes, journalism does pay at the top papers and elsewhere. And how do you get those jobs in print and other media? Being an attractive female helps enormously — and if you don’t believe it, look around you at the next press conference you attend. Some of us older males have decades of experience but were forced to take survival journalism jobs, after the big layoffs in 2008, at low-level wires and tip services etc., where the pay is, at best, $22 an hour — and it sucks badly.
