The definition of journalism.
Journalism is the practice of reporting current events or trends, and
analyzing them in a way that appeals to the public. Journalism covers a wide array
of topics, such as politics, entertainment, and sports. Journalists, people who
practice journalism, utilize newspapers, magazines, and the internet as means to get their information to the public.
I hope that I will be able to improve my writing skills from Journalism 12. Though I may not necessarily become a journalist in the future, I know that improving my writing will be a great benefit wherever I go.
One type of journalism that a Christian journalist would excel in is advocacy journalism.
In advocacy journalism, the journalist firmly states his or her viewpoints about a certain topic. Though advocacy journalism, a Christian would be able to allow readers to know about his or her thoughts on religion and faith. As 1 Timothy 6:12 says, Christians are to "fight the good fight," and stand up for our faith. Though this will be a difficult task, as we are living in a society that rejects religion, we must "be men of courage," as it says in 1 Corinthians 16:13.
