The until recently mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent has had it up to here with the indignities of modern day journalism and will ragequit his job at the once venerable Metropolis newspaper, The Daily Planet, this week, citing disgust with his employers’ reliance on vapid entertainment stories and their abandonment of proper news. We know this because it was reported by USA Today.
Wrote a funny thing I feel pretty good about.
The highlight of the day for me, along with the punchline at the end of Alex Pappademas’s post on this matter:
But seriously, Scott Lobdell — a Drudge shout-out in 2012? Did you have to AltaVista that reference, or are you more of an Ask Jeeves guy? Why not invoke Brill’s Content or Space.com while you’re at it? Also, c’mon — he’s Superman. Surely he’ll aim a little higher than “the next Huffington Post,” too. Although we’re not going to lie: It would be weirdly awesome if this became a book about a pantsless Clark Kent putting together celebrity-sideboob slideshows faster than a speeding bullet while endlessly refreshing his Instagram feed to see if Lois Lane has a new boyfriend. Although maybe that’s just us.
