War reporting is obviously totally glamorous, but it also seems kind of hard and plus you might die. Who wants that? It is apparently better than reporting about Lazard or News Corp. or whatever.
This is yet more proof that media reporting is neither lucrative nor fun. No one is even doing it anymore! Jon Fine is on a six-month sabbatical and the L.A. Times' Jim Rainey is now a columnist instead of a reporter. Soon the only newspaper media reporter left will be Howard Kurtz and then none of us will ever actually learn anything about the media again.
