Journalists for Sale

Ooh, I love that Mini-Cooper!

Wanted: Journalism students who would like to earn money for their J-School. All you have to do is start a blog and write happy things about cars. Here's an example: "It's a great car. I love how great it runs. I love it's great greatness. Awesome. It rocks. Greatly."
Be creative. Don't worry about big words or AP style. Just say great things AND earn money for your school.

What do you think about this? Are you willing to blog for money? I mean, if the big boys are doing it like Ethics and Religion columnist Mike McManus, why not you? "Pay to Praise," the new trend in journalism, is not all that new. Check out Newsweek's Jonathan Alter's take on the issue. He writes about the MSM (mainstream media) and how they are "spitting into the soup."
