(Newser) – Ticked-off journalists now have a forum to anonymously vent anger about the demands of their fast-changing profession: angryjournalist.com. A young former reporter created the site because he was disappointed by the direction of the industry and its high turnover, reports the AFP. "It's kind of depressing to see an industry that treat its workers so badly," says founder Kiyoshi Martinez.

The site features complaints and diatribes of all types, though many are related to the strains of competing against a digital world. "I'm angry because my company, just like the rest of the industry, wants me to do more with less," says angry journalist No. 241. "Our executive editor, the man who's supposed to be leading our newsroom, wanders around the building like he forgot where he left his coffee cup," gripes No. 2570.
