Questions for Practicing Journalists--General Statement of Guidelines
I have posted several questions for practicing journalists to use as a forum. These questions are listed as individual postings so they can be commented on individually. If you are not a practicing journalist, I would ask if you comment on a specific question, that you state yourself in the comment as a non-journalist, citizen journalist, semi-journalist, or your personally considered status. This, of course is somewhat open to one's own judgment of what constitutes a journalist in our current news culture. For the purposes of this blog, I would consider practicing journalists those who work at least half-time in the act of providing news to the general public for a organization that retains a membership, grants, governmental, or advertiser base as its means of revenue to support news gathering activities. One can post anonymously to this section. I have done this to increase the ability of commentators to be candid about their experiences.
