So far, my sources have yet to respond to me….or they’re just ignoring me. I’m feeling a little like this poor being:
Anywho, I plan on contacting some other potential sources but thought I would ask for some tips from my fellow classmates first. My project’s quest is to provide the journalists’ point of view on the risks that come along with the profession. Background knowledge I’m hoping to acquire consists of journalistic ethics in local and foreign reporting, a definition of journalism this day in age, and its inherent risks. I know several student reporters but thought that interviewing people who have actually reported abroad may provide insight I, as a student reporter, obviously lack. If anyone knows of someone who has attended school for journalism specifically or has adequate experience in the professional “real world,” it would be appreciated beaucoup.
- reporters/ journalists in general (obvi)
- even online journalists/ bloggers
- graduate students studying journalism
- professors who have been foreign correspondents/ journalists
- people familiar with the basics of journalistic ethics
Just throwing this out there— suggestions more than welcome! Thanks!
