Courage in Journalism

A very important aspect in Journalism is courage. A reporter takes a lot of critism in his or her carrier and without courage you wouldn't stand a chance in this world. You need courage to find the really good stories. In most cases, a reporter doesn't get his stories presented on his table. A reporter should be out there, looking for incredible stories. Courage, could also mean to ask question to people on the street. Our world today, is a confusing and sick place and without courage it is hard to open your mind to let all that information in. Intelligent, isn't enough for a reporter today you need courage to be succesful.

Journal #1

For some students a new year and for others the first year at EHS, but for everybody who likes pop it will be a year of pain. The first thing the school did for the new year, was removing every pop machine in the school. The school says its because of the health, but what about the juices. They have almost twice as much sugar than pops. Additionally, what about nachos, pizzas and so on, they are not even close to be healthy. There is no reason to take those pop machines, because on the other hand the school made probably a lot of money out of them. So why? I dont see a reason. Having that said what about the bathrooms. Almost every bathroom in the school is locked and if the bathroom is not locked its probably at the end of the school. Hey, everybody has to do it and there is no way that we all fit in one bathroom. Somebody has to do something about it.
