Unfortunately, A.J.'s lone Evening Report clip isn't one he'll want to share with possible future employers.
A.J. Clemente is learning the hard way that it's tough to find a job in journalism these days, especially when the first two words of your TV career are "fuckin' shit."

THE BACKSTORY: New NoDak TV news anchor's first two on-air words are "fuckin' shit!" [VIDEO]

But don't expect to see Clemente in your local breadline. Though his dream of working at ESPN hasn't (yet) come to fruition, Clemente has found work as a bartender at a seaside spot called the Table and Taproom in Dewey Beach, Delaware.

"This is what I'm doing for now -- I definitely need to make money for bills," Clemente, 24, told Rumor Fix.

He's making $2.23 an hour plus tips. You could make a lot more living in the Twin Cities and working at the Happy Gnome, A.J. -- Minnesota is one of only seven states that allows servers and bartenders to earn the full minimum wage and keep their tips too.

On the positive side, we'd much rather spend our summer pouring drinks within eyeshot of the Atlantic than up in Bismarck, NoDak.

How is this local news? Where is the report about the child care union bill that was brushed under the table until after it was passed?


@CinBlueland Brushed under the table? I have heard numerous stories about this bill in the past several weeks.

@CinBlueland  Thank you for that.  I nearly killed a bicyclist yesterday who was wearing an iPod, riding on the sidewalk, and crossed the street at speed (against the light) on the crosswalk.  Of course, almost immediately I nearly got creamed myself by a lady who was texting.  Those close calls are getting more and more frequent, but I still had to pull over and B-R-E-A-T-H-E for a moment.

@GeekAaron Thanks, and wow.. Strib had that one buried. As for MPR, I have a 2mi commute so not much time for radio when I drive, and when I bike don't listen so I can pay attention to traffic around me.
