We all are journalists
If you blog or tweet then you are reporter sans salary because the ones on payrolls are either too dull on creativity or over worked to use it. While your objectivity-subjectivity, perspective- criticism is at their disposal to use, publish, ‘quote-unquote’ and helps in filling space in the newspapers.
Earlier they published book- movie reviews and travelogues off the blogs. Now, every worthy, un-worthy story will have a few tweets as quotes. Be it Beti B’s arrival or Justice Markandey Katju’s comments ‘no saint without a past and no sinner without a future’ on Sunny Leone’s profession. Formula is simple -It trends, we tweet, media publishes!
Next time, you write anything in 144 characters, remember to read the papers next day. Who knows you have helped a journalist in distress to ‘tweerite’ a story.
