ABSTRACT:
The word "journalism" is often complicated and misinterpreted by many. Most people do not consider journalism a profession because there isn't a set of guidelines that everybody must pass and there is no required curriculum for journalists. We live in a time where news is accessed in many different ways through many different platforms. Journalists cannot solely be looked at as writers, editors and news anchors. Being a journalist means being an invisible fourth branch to the government. Journalists are expected to be the watch-dogs of society and to inform the public. It requires a great civic duty and a devotion to truth. Journalists provide citizens with the information to form their own opinions.
KEYWORDS:
Journalism, Society, Citizens, Government.
