It would require a heady company of riffraff to make The North Jefferson News feel itself above the fray, but that’s apparently the case today. Every year the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover hosts the SEC Media days so that real live salaried journalists with degrees in actual journalism can look down upon the hoi poloi bloggers and grumble about how anybody can get press passes these days.
The SEC handed out over 1100 passes. Some went to newspapers, television stations, etc. Most went to anyone with a domain name so long as they promised that they were working towards a legitimate purpose and no fingers crossed. How did I miss this? I have at least two posts that relate to football! I should be involved in the fun!
And those people have legitimate writing jobs. Think of what the slack jawed basement dwellers are saying. I’ll be there next year. I will make it my mission. MSYS will be a credentialed newsish service.
