Journalism: A Slow Death

Do you know what is ironic?

I am currently studying for a job in a field that is on its downward path. I am investing both time and money into a path that may no longer hold the same importance as it does now. I constantly enter the field searching for stories, interviewing various individuals, gaining their thoughts towards topics and it terrfies me that I may not even have a job once I graduate. That all this hard work may not even ‘pay off’.

Who owns your news?

News is critical to our understanding of key events occurring around the globe. It provides us with an insight quickly to an event that has occurred, closing the borders in which govern countries and allowing distribution of information across those lines. In an ideal world, news is free and unbiased. However, in reality companies are often bought and information is biased and/or unreliable.
