Forbes names being a journalist one of the worst jobs for the 21st Century and calls journalists an "endangered species."
Despite the proliferation of media outlets, newspapers, where the bulk of U.S. reporters work, will cut costs and jobs as the Internet replaces print. While current events will always need to be covered (we hope), the number of reporting positions is expected to grow by just 5 percent in the coming decade, the Labor Department says. Most jobs will be in small (read: low-paying) markets.

Worst jobs... in the U.S., surely. I still think Chinese coal miner is way below journalist.

Then call it "most unthankful" if you think journalists are becoming an endangered species. Calling it "worst" means you think it is bad.
