Journalism lite

The San Diego Union-Tribune has a job listing for something it calls a "Jr. Staff Writer," which one person described to me as "reporter lite."

Here's the description of duties:
Under supervision, will research and write news and straight forward short stories with low level of complexity, analysis and narrative, in accordance with identified style and structure; compile lists, contribute regularly to blogs during the course of the work day; work with reporters as directed to enhance larger trend stories; may “fill in” in other areas as assigned when reporters are away from their beats; may use social media to enhance readership and find sources, and assist with daily cops calls.
Salary is negotiable.
