Clark Kent quits The Daily Planet ‘to start the next Huffington Post or the next Drudge Report’

USA Today
In the new Superman, Clark Kent quits The Daily Planet “in front of the whole staff and rails on how journalism has given way to entertainment,” Brian Truitt writes in USA Today. Writer Scott Lobdell tells Truitt, “This is really what happens when a 27-year-old guy is behind a desk and he has to take instruction from a larger conglomerate with concerns that aren’t really his own.”

“I don’t think he’s going to be filling out an application anywhere,” the writer says. “He is more likely to start the next Huffington Post or the next Drudge Report than he is to go find someone else to get assignments or draw a paycheck from.”
