Journalism refers to the collection, preparation, and distribution of news and related commentary through various media channels. These include print and electronic media such as newspapers, magazines, books, blogs, webcasts, podcasts, social networking sites, and email, as well as radio, motion pictures, and television. Journalism is the production and distribution of reports on the interaction of events, facts, ideas, and people that are the "news of the day" and that informs society to at least some degree of accuracy. The word, a noun, applies to the occupation (professional or not), the methods of gathering information, and the organizing literary styles.

The appropriate role for journalism varies from country to country, as do perceptions of the profession, and the resulting status. In some nations, the news media are controlled by government and are not independent.[1] In others, news media are independent of the government and operate as private industry. In addition, countries may have differing implementations of laws handling the freedom of speech, freedom of the press as well as slander and libel cases.

The proliferation of the Internet and smartphones has brought significant changes to the media landscape since the turn of the 21st century. This has created a shift in the consumption of print media channels, as people increasingly consume news through e-readers, smartphones, and other personal electronic devices, as opposed to the more traditional formats of newspapers, magazines, or television news channels. News organizations are challenged to fully monetize their digital wing, as well as improvise on the context in which they publish in print. Newspapers have seen print revenues sink at a faster pace than the rate of growth for digital revenues.

In summary, journalism plays a crucial role in keeping the public informed about current events, shaping opinions, and fostering a well-informed society. Whether through traditional print media or modern digital platforms, journalists continue to be vital contributors to our understanding of the world around us.

    I’m in school for journalism and journalism done right is building rapport and relationships giving them space to want to contact you, not stalking and forcing a story out of someone. They want to feel safe to tell the media stuff not bombarded with obsessed journalists who just want a story
