What is Journalism?

“Journalists are the eyes, ears and voices for their fellow citizens—in local communities, across the country and around the globe. From war zones to boardrooms, rom courtrooms to capital cities, from hospitals, police stations and sports arenas to church basements, journalists rush to places where events occur. They ask questions, report what they see and hear, and offer analysis of the developments and issues that shape our society.”
