Journalism School Cliche Bingo Board Includes 'Lame Jab at Fox News'

Via JimRomenesko.com, two journalism students in Boston have created a game called "Journalist Guest Speaker Cliche Bingo"  full of repetitive phrases they're tired of hearing. Kyle Clauss Kyle Clauss wrote: “My roommate [Alex Reimer] and I are students at Boston University’s College of Communication. We’ve listened to our fair share of self-righteous, out-of-touch journalist guest speakers, so we created this bingo board. Thought you and your readers might appreciate it.”

These include some liberal classics: "Lame jab at Fox News," "Bemoans corporatization of media," and "How many of you read The New York Times? GOOD."

They apparently also make fun of the lack of social-media hipness with this: "How many of you are on Twitter? Anyone?"
