It’s been another big week for Bristol journalism …
“Dream Jobs! How to get them by those who know,” announces the front cover of this week’s Venue.
Sounds good. We could all do with a dream job. Here at the Blogger we’re ready and waiting to take on the chairmanship of the Committee of Public Safety (Bristol Area). So how do we do it?
To answer this burning question, Venue consults none other than “Festival Organiser Emily Eavis”. Although quite what’s so exciting about spending your life producing endless Health and Safety risk assessments so that 100,000 students can listen to Paul McCartney is anybody’s guess.
Emily is, of course, the daughter of Michael Eavis, the former organiser of, er … Glastonbury Festival! So how on earth did she ever get this dream job?
Luckily Venue hacks are on hand to interview Emily and explain this mystery: “There’s no course or qualification as such,” explains Emily helpfully.
“Get some work experience, work on different events, see how other people do it,” she sagely advises.
Oh and also make sure daddy’s a wealthy landowner who can just hand you a job on a plate …
Apparently the brilliant investigative hack and public representative for the footsoldiers of our city’s media army in their endless battle to bring us the truth has decided that Wednesday’s earthquake in Lincolnshire was in fact covert underground nuclear testing conducted by the MoD at a secret airbase!!!
Blimey. If this is the best our hacks can do then you begin to see how Cancer editor New Bunny Norton has risen so far. Compared to the rest of them, arriving in town two years ago and completely not transforming the city’s ailing rag by changing its font slightly and introducing a horse and pony page on Saturdays begins to resemble journalistic genius.
