“Dealing with the media is more difficult that bathing a leper”
Mother Teresa

When I first saw this I thought it said leopard so I was laughing. First of all your not going to catch one . . . then if you do, its going to be near impossible to bathe it. I was thinking this is exactly what dealing with the media is like! Then I read it again and noticed it said leper. This as well is a great comparison to dealing with the media. Journalism is not going to be easy but I believe that if your heart is in it then you could do anything you want to do!

I also stumbled upon a few quotes that I thought were really mean about journalism and journalists but it just goes to show you what your dealing with when you decide to take a job.

“If a person is not talented enough to be a novelist, not smart enough to be a lawyer, and his hands are too shaky to perform operations, he becomes a journalist.”- Norman Mailer


I, however, disagree completely and I believe that it takes talent, hard work, and creativeness to be a journalist.

“Journalists are like dogs, whenever anything moves they begin to bark.” -Arthur Schopenahauer 


This is extremely true! If you are a journalist you have to follow everything and see if there is a story and if it is going to make the news. You have to find the story to write one so you can do your job.
