The gossip industry is a growth industry, thanks to the web as well as digital and video cameras. Get that one of Paris with her dog and Liza with that new 20 pounds.
In addition to the old print standbys like National Enquirer and People, there are now wildly popular online sites like Gawker.com and Politico.com. The jobs are diverse. You can be a paid tipster, publisher, editor, marketer, or hands-on disher of the dirt through articles or only visuals with captions. Pay runs from about minimum wage to the celebrity-level compensation the late Dominick Dunne received. You can work full time, part time, and freelance.
