In Praise Of Journalists

Now that we're all set to welcome Playboy, as well as an Indian version of Maxim, it's time to hear Stuff Magazine's editor Jimmy Jellinek let fly: "This business attracts assholes like flies flock to poop. Most of us are just frustrated high school newspaper geeks who spent our teen years rubbing our hands, going, 'I'll show you.' So when it comes time to actually show somebody something you have to wring the most you can from the sponge. So you have all these dickheads whose sense of purpose and power derives from where they sit on a masthead. What else you going to brag about, the pay? Hell no, a first year analyst at Goldman Sachs with a coke problem makes more than most of us do."
