When you are a journalism major you learn about all of the different types of journalism, including: magazine, newspaper, online journalism, photojournalism, broadcast journalism, and even public relations. Writing, editing and reporting are the key skills, however, a knowledge of history, culture, and current events are important as well.

Like I have said before, because it keeps popping up on every website for journalism, journalism’s first obligation is to the truth. Journalism isn’t about making up our own stories or assuming what happened to someone else’s . . . that’s fairytales! Journalists are writers but they are a different kind of writer.

With Citizen journalism you have to work with it. Your version, thoughts, and opinions might not obscure the truth, although, in some cases it helps to questions professional publications as a happy medium. Readers check the facts and want to know the truth, so accuracy is a must.
