Gotta love that the Jets beat is treated like an apprenticeship with the media. Like working in the mail room.

I vote for Karl Pilkington as his replacement. He's negative enough and I guarantee he knows nothing about football.

Jason McIntyre from Big Lead Sports is reporting that Manish Mehta will no longer be the NY Jets beat reporter for the Daily News.

Manish was known for quoting anonymous sources in many of his stories.  These unnamed sources were critical of Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez.  Manish is also known for blocking many Jets fans on Twitter that disagreed with his opinions. Here is a thread with fan thoughts on Manish Mehta.

Seth Walder is in the bullpen warming up and is ready for a bigger role at the Daily News.

Tough act to follow Manish and Rich, love to see the interview process to be the Jets beat writer.

Perhaps Mike Francesca could do it as a fill in. He seems as unbiased, and level headed as the two previous incumbents of the position. ;-)

I'm just glad we'll have a new beat writer who's gonna post positive Jets articles every day and ignore any source--excuse me: "source"--that won't go on the record, because if there's one thing I know that Jets fans like, it's a reporter that's positive and adheres to the strictest journalistic codes. BTW, Watergate probably wasn't real because "Deep Throat" wasn't a real name.

@SethWalderNYDN: Just be aware that Jets fans all grew up reading Tiger Beat and thus meet all negative press with irrational crying jags.

They all want to become "NFL" guys because they think it opens more doors.  That said, how much money can a bear reporter make these days?  Awesome job, no doubt.  But they all seem to be hiring 20 something's to do these jobs now.  Can't pay that much imo.

If a bear wants to be a reporter, you pay him whatever he wants, in salmon.  They're soulless killing machines.

Not really since despising the team is one of the requirements. Do any of our beat reporters actually seem happy?

The NFL guys don't have to troll out to every stupid OTA practice, and get to pick and choose their spots. Gary Myers can produce a month's worth of columns by pirating other people's camp reports and making a few phone calls, all the while making $250k plus.
