In today’s #askareporter, we talk to former local reporter, James Mahon, who says without warning, he became the face of the new Twitter parody account, Guy at your J-School.

His photo has since come down but James says it’s a lesson for young reporters out there, at any point your online image and brand can be manipulated.  “To take that picture of me covering that trial from years ago and to just put it onto an account talking about farting and making inappropriate remarks for this pathetic very low level college humor is very disrespectful.”
