Here is a new job ad from tabloid weekly Oriental Sunday.

'Many entertainment reporters wanted urgently,' it says. 'If you can work extremely hard, take pain, hardship and pressure well, and want to chase celebrities all day long, we welcome you.'

No mention of reporting experience, academic qualification or of salaries.
