David Barstow’s 8 P.M. lecture

Hi Blog world,

Last night I went to the 8 P.M. lecture by David Barstow. He started out by telling us a story about how someone had an $80,000 contract on his life. He was worried about his safety. His paper that he was working for at the time sent out six ex-navy seals for protection. After a few days of being watched, he took his family to Disney for three days and the person who was threatening him, was prosecuted and sent to jail.

He talked about the freedom of information act and how as Journalist we are having a hard time getting the information that we need.  Many journalists now quit perusing the information rather than fight for the information that they need to write their stories.  Also there are so many people taking up Public Relations that Journalism is dying. But there is hope, because there are journalists in my generation fighting for the right to be good reporters.

During a short Question and Answer session after the lecture he gave students an opportunity to ask questions. One of those questions was:” How do students get a good career? ”  His answer was simple, “Find a good teacher, editor that will teach you about your mistakes and to let you know that it’s OK to make mistakes.” He also said to set goals for yourself.

Blog  soon,

Amanda Gene
