Journalists are Heroes
The recent things going on in Egypt have taught us a lot about what journalists are willing to endure in order to bring us fair and accurate information about what is going on around the world. Many journalists traveled to Egypt and they put their lives at risk in order to get as close as they possibly could to all of the action. Journalists do this not for the ratings, but because they genuinely care about the rest of the nation receiving the latest and most important news about important topics. When civil unrest erupted in Egypt, those journalists traveled there and then refused to leave because they wanted to be at the forefront of the action and they wanted to make sure that everyone back home had a good idea of what was going on.
Though you may not necessarily agree, it is important to understand that journalists are heroes too. They are putting themselves in harm’s way because they want to deliver the news. They’re not doing it for the popularity or the ratings, they’re not doing it for a pat on the back. They really, genuinely just want to make sure that everyone in the United States has a good idea of what is occurring, even if it means putting themselves in risk in the process. If you ever had any doubt about the integrity of a good journalist, hopefully the recent goings on in Egypt were enough to completely change your mind about the hard work and dedication that they exhibit every single day.
