There’s an old joke about a guy who goes to the circus and he sees a man shoveling manure, all the time cussing and complaining about the work. So, the guy says to him, ‘hey, if it’s so bad, why don’t you just quit.’ To which, the circus worker says, ‘what, and give up show business?’ Well, apparently that is a parable for broadcasters. Three separate reports put news broadcasters at the low end of the employment totem pole. All right, I know. I can hear the cynics out there saying, “Color me surprised.” But there’s more.
