The Self-important Journalist

On the BBC’s The Press the ruthless editor-in-chief says we write outrageous stories to change things. That is activist journalism and the activist imagines himself important. I think neither left nor right should be activists.

I initially wanted to be a foreign correspondent. The expatriate similarly imagines themselves important as a representative of his supporting community with the responsibility to illuminate his purview for poor ignorant folk.
