Today’s Journalists: Never On Vacation

This simple Twitter exchange may feel familiar to anyone in journalism—or in any facet of media, actually. We’re all victims of the 24 hour news cycle now.

Earlier today, David Carr tweeted out:

What does @brianstelter do on vacation? drops 1k words about Hulu’s sub service. #ManOrMachine?

Stelter replied:

Don’t feel too bad for me, @carr2n. (via @boonspoon) #manorboy?

Stelter’s link? Goes to this image:

Hey, if you gotta work all the time, at least do it from the beach.

What, you mean some people take vacations without their smartphones? Blasphemy.
