Why journalism is not just another profession

16 August 2008

    Indeed, we must have much to be grateful for fine and courageous journalists. But, like good journalists themselves, we must all develop a strong ability for critical thinking, so that we can cope with the mass of gossip and backbiting, and the sometimes failure of critical thinking that often stands for journalism.
