City Paper is not for tourists
It may only be the third most important hacking-related story of the summer, but the news that The Washington Post‘s website was hacked last month is still pretty significant—not least for the 1.3 million users of the paper’s employment site whose personal email addresses may have been exposed.
But it may not be the worst employement-related news of the week—at least not for those seeking jobs in journalism.
To find worse news, just check out the Reuters story about the Post hacking affair. Or, rather, check out its dateline: Bangalore. Yes, the one in India. Sorry, aspiring American newspaper-hacking beat reporters—turns out the British wire service employs a whole newsroom of outsourced financial writers to cover U.S. market news.
