As a reporter for the highly acclaimed Ames High WEB, I have taken it upon myself to write an article on the most debatable topic: the idea of writing good journalism. Many people think that journalists are the scumbags of the world, but, while most probably are, I am here to assure you that there is at least one good journalist out there in these dark times. Journalists are supposed to guide you to the light and lead you to top-hitting news stories, like Michael Jackson’s funeral, so people shouldn’t shun these great people for telling the truth and nothing but the truth. However, journalists on this news-team have false and made-up information in their stories. You, my dear reader, might be wondering, “Well, isn’t that to be expected? Doesn’t everyone make some stories up?” Lying is wrong, yes, but we need to have action in our papers. You, reader, are a liar yourself. I know you. I know you to be a liar. Have you ever just ranted for long periods of time to make your paper look longer? Well, this is what I just did, and I just gave you some good, decent information. I’m done deceiving you. What I did are some of the things you should look for in fake papers, but true journalism will never have anything like that in it. There is always something good to read in it, and the stories are chalk-full of information. It baffles me when people think the WEB is full of lies. It saddens my heart. We pour our hearts and souls into the stories we create to let you, the reader, understand things better. Journalism is a way of presenting facts and not letting the writer’s personal opinion show in the article, unless, of course, you are writing an opinion paper. People don’t like journalism because it doesn’t give them an idea of what they should do. Let’s be honest, people need to be told what to do, or else they have no idea as to what they should do. They are cattle without a Texan, sheep without a shepherd, the weak without a leader. So I encourage you to go out and read some true journalism and see how it feels.
