So you want to be a journalist

"I would like to write for the New York Times. I want to live in a big apartment in Greenwich Village and go to cool restaurants every night with my exciting friends. Like on TV."

"Would you like to live in your parents' basement and work for the local weekly on a contract basis without health benefits?"

"You are very bitter.... I want to be in the newsroom, bantering with my colleagues about the important things we are writing about."
