On Wednesday Youngman published an article on Politico, "Take this job and shove it," which has caused a stir among the journalistic set. He paints a rather dim picture of the Washington press corp and his involvement with it. In the article he recounts his job history but does not mention his early experience as a political reporter at PoliticsPA in 2004.
