Reliance on Journalists

Okay, I might have been venting a little when I posted my last piece called A True Professional. I was just feeling sorry for myself because I went to college majoring in journalism, I feel very passionately about it and I truly feel it is a calling and not just “anybody” can do it. I got caught up in reading other blogs, all damning newspapers to the bottom of hell and beyond and I got fed up. But I am calm now, feeling a lot better and less emotional.

The truth is, (ever wonder why people start with that? Like they were lying the whole time or something) blogs and citizen input has proven less valuable due to the fact that nothing is new or verifiable. Bloggers report on stories that have already been investigated, written up, edited and published by professionals.

This is comforting to me because this proves to me that journalists will have a fighting chance to regain their audience and their audiences’ trust and stick around—where would blogging be without them?
