Our reporters have been going up against the Marines at Marine Corps Base Quantico for weeks, but now they’ve decided to go all-in. If you’re going to compete against the Marines, you have to live like the Marines–or at least try to. (Reporter Vs. Marine: The Martial Arts Challenge)

Ahead of their next competition The Daily Caller’s Ford Springer and The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Leah Jessen decided to sleep at some of the oldest Marine barracks on base to get their minds right. Stay tuned for the next episode to see how it turned out for them.

“Reporter VS” is a web series where The Daily Caller puts its reporters into the shoes of professionals who face adversity that is unimaginable to a pencil pushing member of the fourth estate. At most news outlets, reporters might be afraid to try, and fail, at a new task. But not at TheDC. We have no problem filming our reporters’ fails and then broadcasting it to the rest of the world. If there is such a thing as blue collar journalism, it would probably look something like The Daily Caller’s “Reporter VS” series.
