Oh to be a reporter, sporting a fedora at a jaunty slant (with that hat brim with which to stick our official reporter card in), glad-handing our sources, uncovering secrets at every turn… and getting paid to fly to Islip on an airplane and then drive back.
All of this in aid of uncovering that it’s cheaper to fly than to drive.
Why? Because they’re freaking journalists and that’s what they do, hardcore investigative reporting. Not all journalism is done with press releases and calling up a Rolodex of usual industry mouthpiece suspects, you know.
