Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

Study Released on Reporter Burnout

Thanks for the timely headsup Ash.

It turns out that being a reporter is stressful, time-consuming and doesn't pay well. For some reason, not many news outlets are covering the groundbreaking story except Gawker. Maybe they didn't know that journalism pays crap and that journalistic integrity can be a heavy yolk. Maybe most journalists found the study a tad obvious when they read it at ten o'clock, at work, eating chinese take-out with a deadline in 10 hours and a source that won't return their call.
