“And after about two years, I realized that creative writing was not going to help you ace those biological tests. So I switched over to journalism. I didn’t graduate with honors, but I did graduate on time and with some doing.”-Bob Schieffer.

I really like Bob’s view of journalism and how he decided to graduate with something that he loved to do, journalism. It just goes to show you that if your good at creative writing and journalism then you should do what you love! Someone once said, “If you do what you love to do you’ll never work a day in your life.”

  • “Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air.”- Henry Anatole Grunwald 
This is so true! If you take a job in journalism it is because you love writing and you love the get stories out, truthful stories. Henry made a good point because he is right, not all journalism is going to be good news! But it is news and we have to learn how to deal with it and write the facts truthfully.
My favorite quote, however, is “Journalism is the first rough draft of history.”  I think this quote speaks for itself!
