Top 3 issues to consider for those willing to give up traditional journalism for freelance copy writing and vice versa.
Journalists seek the truth and help to give a voice to the voiceless, which is essential when it comes to holding individuals, businesses, governments and institutions accountable for their actions. They often risk their lives to uncover information and go out of their way to provide a voice for the otherwise voiceless, and help to ensure all citizens of society's issues that they should be aware of.
Journalists are committed to finding out the truth about all subjects, no matter what sector it involves – economics, politics, society, or otherwise. They are held as credible figures that back up their investigations with actual facts and interviews that can help uncover information that the population didn’t know.
Journalists are more important than ever, whether it is an attempt to provide a voice to those that don’t have one, explain the context of everything from political to fashion to culinary trends, or to simply interview important figures in a certain sector.
Transparency is necessary in the modern world, and truth needs to be uncovered to ensure that the right issues get addressed, and certain parties are held accountable for their actions. This might include a corporation who is compromising the privacy of their customers, or a politician who is spending money illegally, for example. Regardless, a journalist helps to write and bring light to issues that either are already widely discussed in society, or need to be discussed more. They can often end up becoming an expert in their specialized field, and many of them even expose themselves to danger and possible death in pursuit of their cause. Ultimately, journalists are individuals who help promote transparency, and true democracies could not exist without the profession.
