It’s not all about you

Too often I see aspiring reporters and videojournalists who think news is all about them. Facetime on air. Public recognition. I hate to disappoint them, but real news is not about you. Real news informs and educates the public about everything from the critical to the trivial. If you want facetime on air, become an actor. If you want to serve your community, learn how to cover and report news.

More later… (yeah, it’s been a long day…)
