Description

My topic revolves around journalism in the modern world. I will explore the history of journalism, its impact on society, and how it has evolved to the point where this power of media can now rest in anybody’s pocket due to online social networks and other applications on the internet and on the phone. While I am not seeking to discredit properly trained and educated journalists, I feel as though it is important to acknowledge the fact that anyone can take part in this modern age of journalism and either use or abuse it. With that, I want to highlight the importance of using this influence effectively and responsibly.
