Business Insider is looking for a stringer to cover the Allen & Co. media summit.

“We’re looking for photos, video, and whatever scraps of information a curious member of the public might be able to glean hanging around the conference,” wrote Nicholas Carlson. “We’ll pay our usual freelance rate for good stuff.”

Sounds good.

Then he adds: “On the bright side, we’ll also give you a byline and the accompanying fame.”

Ouch.
