Prime example of why I switched from journalism to logistics. You end up digging too hard for juicy quotes and ultimately piss people off. It's a horrible profession full of unethical decisions. The public could probably care less if LaFell is paying his child support.

ahh man, don't tell me that. I'm 16 and I want so badly to go into journalism, but I just hear nothing but bad things about it

In the age of digital media its a very insecure position. As much as I love writing there's no way I would pursue a career in journalism, especially for any print entity.

Honestly man, I'd look down a different career path if I were you. I don't mean to discourage you but it's just a bad field that has graduates duking it out for $25,000 salary jobs, whereas business majors have less competition for 6-figure jobs. In addition, I'm just sick of the sensationalism that goes on.

yeah journalism is an extremely risky career path to get yourself into(and thats putting it lightly) but if thats your true passion then dont let anyone stop you from pursuing it bro. just know the risks and be willing to work your ass off, but thats with any job.. all im saying is, dont let the naysayers stop you from pursuing your passion, happens to too many people. dont let anyone else dictate your path for you is all im saying really.

um that is his job. It's like how TD can act all cool with someone that may be his friend but on the field, all he wants to do is beat them. It's his job and that wasn't very bright of TD but whatever. All I care is him preforming which he is.

His job? His job is to right an article about LaFell paying X amount in child support when someone claims it should be Y.

He isn't good at his job if THAT is covering the panthers

That's the problem, as a professional journalist you're supposed to be unbiased and completely objective.


As a national sports journalist, sure. As a local beat writer....not so much.
