Ragtag Daily Post May 24 : Journalist
A personal view
Journalism brings to mind integrity, balanced view, an intent to find the truth, or at least the facts, and report as accurately as possible. The media however is another thing altogether. Where everything has a spin depending on who is asking the questions and why they are asking them. Most of what is written on social media I take with a big handful of salt whereas a report from an authentic journalist can be on the whole be believed as honest reporting. In an age of cynicism, fake news and photoshop it’s hard to know what to believe, and we have to weigh up all sources and try to balance the extremities of what we hear and read with common sense and our own informed (g)estimate of what is the truth.
