What got you into journalism in the first place?
"The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men. For the record: prejudices can kill, and suspicion can destroy, and the thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own, for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is... that these things cannot be confined... to The Twilight Zone."
- Rod Serling,
"The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street,"
"The Twilight Zone"
Episode first aired, March 4, 1960, says IMDB.

You Don't Say

"A journalist walks down the street and sees stories others don't see. They have investigative skills, they develop sources. That's valuable in many fields of work. Look beyond the obvious, you can do anything."
An informal survey reported at The Journalism Shop finds ex-LA Times staffers feeling less secure, but several respondents say they are also less stressed now that they don't have to worry about working at the paper.
Some find themselves with new or newly found health problems.
Most who responded say they're struggling financially, with the vast majority of respondents saying they're earning less than half of what they earned at the LA Times.
