1. Tell us what Is The Difference Between Saying Journalism And Communications?

When you write a letter to someone, you are communicating.
Journalism is someone writes in a newspaper or magazine for the whole world to read.

2. Tell me what Are Tear Sheets And Clips For Copy Editors?

You can make color reductions and I am sure they will be acceptable. Journalism graphics majors at our university usually buy large portfolios--at least 12 by 17 to put their design tear sheets. Electronic PDF are becoming more and more acceptable. Some of our students here have made online digital portfolios and put their resumes and all of their tear sheets (article and design) on a website.

3. Tell me did the Bravo show portray your profession accurately?

I really only saw the rough cuts to make sure I wasn't getting fucked. It's not like I want to be on television. It was a grueling process because all of a sudden I had to run around with a film crew. I still had to get into that goddamn building, but now with a camera on my tail.

Don't get me wrong: they were gracious, they were good and they were very talented people. They did right by us. It was honest.

4. Tell me what Is The Status Of Written Journalism These Days?

I job shadowed a newspaper reporter when I was a senior in high school, him and his boss basically laughed at me because they said that journalism was a dying thing

If you do not necessarily agree with that though, there will always be a need for journalists, whether on newspapers or internet.

5. Explain me how do you deal with being in potentially dangerous situations?

Well, I do that everyday of the week. I've never walked away from a story. Violence is the cost of doing business. You keep your nerve, you keep your wits and you chase stories.

6. Tell us why Are Professional Ethics So Important In Journalism And The Legal World?

Lawyers are held to a code of ethics by law (not that they necessarily follow it). As far as journalists are concern, it is more like a suggested set of guidelines. These days it is very rare to find any kind of ethics in Journalism.

7. Tell me what are the unanswered questions?

As journalists, we're not always good at spelling out what we don't know in a story, especially if it's a breaking story. Oftentimes, we try to write around the holes. Better to be clear and 'fess up in the story about what remains to be explained and clarified. This question also prompts the writer and editor to compile a list of questions for any follow-up stories.

8. Tell us how Should You Dress The Characters In Video Journalism Movie?

Old woman should be wearing a nice classic dress, with pearls, pearl necklace and earrings, maybe a pillbox hat, shawl very Jackie O, or Queen Elisabeth. Egotistical businesspersons usually wear nice suits, slicked back hair, and cocky stern look on face.

9. Tell me what's your take on blogs and the burgeoning online media culture?

I don't have a lot of time for that. I'm busy. This aggregation thing, it's a bad ethos. If people are not producing original journalism, why should people pay attention? Overtime, they won't. But by then the real institutions are going to be gone, and you just don't build those overnight. Everyone's going to be locked into these aggregators until they get bored and realize they don't serve their interest, and they're going to look around for the real newspapers and the real newsmakers, and they're not going to be there anymore. Then what are we going to do?

10. Explain me how do we bring something new to this story?

Your best reporters want to be challenged. And chances are, if they are veterans, they have tackled a story similar to the one they are tackling now. What better way to challenge them than to ask them to come up with a fresh approach to the story? The approach could involve words, but it could also involve photography, graphics and online elements. This question will also help writers think about collaborating with visual journalists across the newsroom.
