(Still more) Adventures in BAD Journalism

Things to do in Houston before you die. Francisca Ortega, Chron.com

Inspired by Steve Carell’s new film, “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” in which he plays a bumbling insurance agent confronting the apocalypse, the staff at the Houston Chronicle spent some time thinking about the things we’d like to do before the end of the world. You can see what we came up with in the gallery above.

What they "came up with" was a list of impossible, illegal, and downright dangerous activities that will probably mean you spend your last few nights on this pebble in a jail cell, in prison, or worse.

To top it all off, this makes Houston seem so uninteresting that the #1 comment left by people is along the lines of:

"This makes me want to leave".

Shameful.

A good newspaper is an asset to the community, what does it make a newspaper when it's a laughingstock and embarrassment?
