I DON’T WANT TO GET AHEAD OF THE STORY.

How I got to be the world’s worst reporter, or is it worst in the country.
I’ve got to be the world’s worst reporter by not being sure that was really the title. Was it in the world or in the country? I was so sure it was the world and not just the country, and besides it’s a better story as world.
I got lucky at hyphenatedrepublic.wordpress.com, where I received the World’s Worst Reporter award.
It’s a bracing yarn, but the gist of is that I’m the pits. Unfortunately I have a previous worst; last year during Occupy Berkeley — when the national co-founder of Occupy denounced me to the General Assembly as writing the worst stories in the whole country on Occupy.
We responded with this piece.
Now there’s how I got to be the world’s worst reporter. By reliance on my memory when I could easily check. It’s a dangerous game, impending certain doom.
