Temple University journalism student Massimo Pulcini, 21, was arrested on drug charges Sunday night after police found marijuana in his house while investigating a home invasion.
Philly.com’s Morgan Zalot took a light approach to the story: “Insert jokes about journalists having to take side jobs to pay the bills here,” she wrote, adding: “Don’t worry, Pulcini, getting nabbed for having weed probably won’t affect your chances of getting a job in journalism — mostly because there are no jobs in journalism.”
That prompted one of my Twitter followers to tweet: “It’s SO cute and clever when people with jobs in journalism say there are no jobs in journalism.” One of Pulcini’s acquaintances wasn’t laughing about the bust, either. He tweeted: “You only arrest the guy in the house bc ur embarrassed that ur rent-a-bike-cop’s can’t find three armed men on foot.”
Pulcini says on his Twitter page that he’s a “Philadelphia journalist, photographer, and musician. Love to talk sports and music. I try to find those bands/artists you’ve never heard of yet.”
