Is journalism the worst job in the world?

They thrive on misfortune and disgrace of others. Murder, robbery, disease, politics, they earn their money when these things happen. And, unlike doctors or undertakers they aren't there to solve any of these problems.

    If it were true Journalism, it would be a good job.  But sadly, most people pitching the supposed news are just biased people putting a twist to what is really going on.  They are puppets, and not doing a service for the vast audience out there. For those that present incorrect, incomplete and biased info on media outlets, they are just part of the problem.

    Once a respected profession:  straight news separate from opinion.  Now a journalist is trusted as much as a used car salesman, lawyer or real estate peddler:  everyone trying to be sensational so as to break-through to the big money jobs, but diploma mills cranking-out more "journalists" than needed.  Edward R Murrow majored in Speech . . . . Walter Cronkite dropped out of college........are there any A-List Journalists who majored in Journalism, or did they succeed from hard work and an ability to inform/entertain with the TRUTH ??

    There is no such word as "journalism" anymore. All of the MSM networks totally converted to bias "opinions" shows. Their anchors are monster a$s kissers of the left.

    Journalism is a needed profession to ensure the public is informed.

    Unfortunately what we have right now are nothing but propagandists.

    Well, where else are you going to be informed? Their job is to bring awareness and to inform. If our justice departments are corrupt they inform the public. The public reacts. The public is suppose to pressure our leaders to do our will because our leaders are public servants. 

    Does this make sense? Journalism informs the public, the public makes the decision on how to react and the public pressures the right departments to make changes that reflect the public's interest. Ideally, this is supposed to be the cycle. 

    Nowadays the news is paid for by people like Rupert Murdoch to push their own agenda. The news has become opinion pieces meant to shape your opinion. The news has become corrupt by the people who fund them but News is meant to be an alert to the public. So that the public can make their own decisions.
