The journalist has a pure soul

From the Wall Street Journal:

It isn’t a secret that some companies seek to buy favorable news coverage or that many journalists pad their incomes with envelopes of money slipped to them at press conferences, or after interviews.

Now, an app takes “envelope journalism” to a new level.

The mobile application Zhao Jizhe — Find a Journalist in Chinese — connects companies seeking publicity and journalists interested in pocketing some extra cash.

On the loading page, the mobile app described itself as “an intellectual community platform where media professionals help entrepreneurs.”

The journalist is a pure soul,

and never for lucre would troll.

Of course, helping out

somebody with clout

has never yet hurt their bankroll.
