Lifestyle reporting is deemed by some as empty and frivolous. I think there is a way to write sexy lifestyle stories without being “fluffy.”
This beat should be useful, political, and relevant. Think of me as the devil in poodle form, like in Goethe’s “Faust.”
In a subsection I call “demon poodle journalism”, I will be chronicling my experiences as the Lifestyle sub-editor for abs-cbnNEWS.com/Newsbreak. All the parties and the PR junkets, and yes, the freebies. The rumors are true. There are LOTS of freebies.
