Howard’s Inner Circle, No. 12: The Current Decrepit State of “Journalism”

One article entitled, “Ditching a $500,000 Salary to Teach Lit,” says it all. I found the article on Yahoo! Finance at It was provided by CCNMoney.Com and written by a contributor.

What I expected as I read the title was a story about a difficult decision and how the transition went. The hope was to learn from this individual’s experience. I would have never read the article if the title, although a bit longer more accurately read “Ditching a $500,000 Salary and Selling Your Business at Age 50 for $6 Million to Teach Lit.” We can work at shortening my title if you want, but you get the idea. By the way, there were three bold faced tips in this short article on how he did it. They are 1. By Taking the First Good Offer; 2. By Investing Conservatively, and 3. By Drawing Down Cautiously.

This is the current state of “journalism.”
