The State Of Journalism Jobs Today: Crossdressing Required?

Brian Ries, the food critic for Creative Loafing in Sarasota and Tampa, has been promoted to editor of the Sarasota edition.

That’s awesome.

But. They’re not filling Ries’ food critic position.

Ries is still going to be writing restaurant reviews, too.

Problem: editors are much more visible than anonymous restaurant critics.

“Soon, there will be plenty of pictures online that restaurants could use to identify me, if they want to go to the bother,” Ries wrote in a blog post. “I won’t make it easy for them — I’ll continue to make reservations under another name, use an alias credit card, and shave my legs to match the summer dresses I plan on wearing as a disguise.”

Ruth Reichl, eat your heart out.
