zimbabwe_flagEverything going on with the election results in Zimbabwe makes me wonder about the picking process for location reporters at larger newspapers.

Think that’s a tense meeting in the Editors’ room of the New York Times, when they have to decide who to send to Zimbabwe versus other world crisis?

“We’re gonna need someone to cover the impending riots over disputed election results leading to a civil war in Africa. Also, someone needs to head to the Australian beaches and chat with hot women who survived the forest fires. So…who’s off to Zimbabwe? Anyone? Hello?”
