Being a journalist is not just a job. It is an identity. And it's being tested and strained — and, at times, bolstered— by the moment in which we live. Today, the work of a reporter carries extra weight. They are both in demand and under scrutiny. But their mission and purpose remains strong, knowing the critical role of a free and vibrant press in a democracy. They inform the public about events and issues with impact, so we can form opinions and make prudent decisions. Their incisive approach to extracting the facts helps hold people accountable, so that all sides of a story can be told.
"So we must be realistic but never hopeless. Much has gone wrong. But it is in our power to put things right."
