Good news! Journalists are moving up in the professional world!

Newspaper Reporter Now Only Second Worst Career
Good news, newspaper reporters of the nation, your job is now only the second worst career choice a person could make. CareerCast’s annual survey of the top 200 jobs placed newspaper journalist at 199, barely edging out lumberjack, at 200. In last year’s survey, newspaper journalist was ranked dead last.
(Somewhere, Graham Chapman is smiling.)
Not such good news these days for advertisers, though. From Advertising Age’s The Data Issue:
Survey: Advertisers Rank Below Government at Protecting Personal Data
Gfk Study Finds Just 25% Believe Marketers Can Be Trusted
Consumers trust marketers and advertisers with their data about as far as they can throw ‘em. More than half of those participating in a recent privacy study said doctors, search engines and banks warrant their trust when it comes to personal data protection. Marketers and advertisers, on the other hand, elicted the least faith from those surveyed; just 25% said the industry is trustworthy with personal information.
So . . .
It’s better to be a journalist than a huckster.
Feel better yet?
