Journalism can be really easy if you know a couple of insiders' tricks. Mat Delaney, long-time practitioner over at the Lake Placid Journal, has a tried and true recipe:
1. Take one news release posted on the web.
2. Cut and paste it into a newsroom word processor.
3. Add byline.
4. Click "send."
5. Collect paycheck.
Journalism is so easy ...
... if you don't mind wearing the plagiarist's hat.
