Is a Messy Desk a Journalist’s Prerequisite?

Yes, we’re shamelessly swiping a video from our colleagues over at TVNewser for some Friday fluff. Check out this profile of Charlie Gasparino of Fox Business Network, in which he shows off his cluttered workspace and says that “any reporter that has a neat desk isn’t a reporter.”

What do you think? My desk is tidy, and I am a reporter, dammit. But as we move to using less paper and more pixels, maybe it’s not the desk that matters, but the Desktop. And I won’t vouch for the state of that.

Do you lean toward cluttered or clean? Whatever the case, have a great weekend, and see you Monday.
