More Favorite Fake Journos


Last week’s favorite fake journo’s drew a cacophony of responses, including our colleague Steve Krakauer, who was a Gus Haynes from The Wire booster. Here are some more of FishbowlNY readers’ favorite fake journos:

”Clark Kent — With super hearing and x-ray vision, he’s able to get leads that no one else ever would. Plus, his alter ego does not protect the people through law — he protects them as a newspaper reporter. And he’s ripped.” Madeline Strum

”Peter Fallow in ‘Bonfire of the Vanities.’ I commend Tom Wolfe on his remarkable ability to illustrate the reporter’s constant drive for free food and alcohol.” Caroline McCarthy
