When I put everything off to focus on coverage
(But) When the post-debate discussions and fact...
I’m like: And then I’m like:
When the debates end
When the moderator tries to move on
At first the candidates are like: And then they’re like:
When a candidate gets called on their crap
I just imagine their inner panic like:
When I miss something important because my twitter...
When Obama can't pronounce Lorraine
When the candidates talk over the moderator
I’m just like: Because I just picture the moderator like:
When Romney pretends he's going to lower taxes on...
And I’m like: Uh no. He has said time and time again that he would reduce the top income tax from 35% to 25%. And maybe that’s what he should do, and maybe it’s not - but he can’t pretend that what he’s saying tonight is true. If it were, then he should start with, “I used to think… but now I see…”, or explain what has changed, because this...
When the candidates pretend they're friends
When the debates are on
Most people: Me:
When Mitt Romney says he's going to make sure I...
And I’m like:
When I go to a holiday party
At home: In the office: Thanks to howdoiputthisgently for the perfect gif pair!
When I want try to use satire
Because a politician is like: And I try to be like: And my editor is like:
When my source calls someone else back but not me
When I realize I'm supposed to be at event...
At first I’m like: Then I’m like: And when the rest of me catches up to my brain:
When a paid reporter visits to give a lecture
On the inside I’m just going:
When I was asked to leave for a startup paper
When freshmen are worried about the paper's rep
When I don't get the story first
When bloggers talk about newspapers
When a source keeps calling back to correct...
When I have to get to third floor office on Sunday...
When I see the Cops reporter I photographed riots...
When I explain why I'm reading the Mayor's 10-year...
And my friend is like:
When my friends talk about J-School
When (and since) I left the paper
At first it was like: And then it got pathetic, like: But I’ll go to the reunion and everyone will be like: And I’ll try to be normal like: But when I get home:
When I meet my trainee
I talk about him to other reporters, like:
When we repost something just too perfect to...
ink-film-nibbles-script: “England is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn’t make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy. And if it hadn’t been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler’s ambitions.” — Mitt Romney The Americans: The British:
When I have to speak at the first all-staff...
Before my turn, I just turn to my bp like:
When I miss my staff
I like to pretend The Newsroom is my staff
When my candidate already complains about...
I’m just like:
When I realize this girl...
IS MAGGIE! And I’m just like: And I know, now you’re like:
When someone reminds me I have two weeks until...
At first I’m just like: And then I’m like:
When I'm preparing to return to my home
When I heard I actually have a desk this semester
When I anticipate unemployment
When I get to the scene before the cops
I like to imagine them like:
When I ask someone why they're quitting the paper
They’re just like:
When someone calls me a workaholic
When I discovered The Newsroom knows my life
It was this moment:
When I haven't slept
It goes like this:
When you go back to journalism school anyway
journoproblems: JournoProblems - excellent blog with similar-but-post-collegiate theme
When I accidentally publish a homophone on the...
And the partners are just like: And then they’re like: But let me just say: Do not tell us “journalism is dead” because we published a homophone on our BLOG, ok? None of us has ever had a correction in reporting, so don’t start that. This is an anonymous tumblr blog, for goodness sakes - it’s not that serious.
When I think I'm finished with my centerpiece
My editor is immediately like: And in my head I’m saying: But on outside I’m just like:
When I try to sneak Oxford commas into an article
My editor is just like: And I’m like:
When I'm not allowed to use Oxford commas
When I get to pressers
When a paper closes or "cuts down"
When we're all scrambling to get to a scoop
