It is the art of reporting events, issues and trends to a broad audience. Journalists have to be on the move 24 X 7, so as to collect the information about the latest happenings in their vicinity. A journalist needs to be vigilant and alert. Journalism is a profession which requires a lot of alacrity or briskness on the part of the journalist.
Journalism includes jobs like editing, photojournalism and documentary. Journalists need to have great vocal skills in the language in which they report the news that they collect. Bob Schieffer had once remarked, “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 honours, but I did graduate on time and with some doing.”
