Doesn't McClatchy have CarrierBuilder? Why is MW acting as an advertising surrogate? Do they pay a commission?

12:56 No, I don't get a commission from McClatchy or CareerBuilder... it's a free service I provide. BTW, stay tuned, I'll be posting more MNI jobs soon.

But why? Ask yourself. Would you allow someone you cared about to work for McClatchy? If the answer is no, then why would you do that to someone else?

Just asking because it doesn't make sense to me.
