This is a news/ news commentary medley brought to you by budding journalist Maggie Barnes.

About Maggie. (Writer. Blogger. Journalist.)
“I have a need to learn and a need to share what I learn with others. I’m constantly wondering what that thing does, who that guy is and why things are that way and not this way. At some point I realized other people might be wondering that too. It is quite literally, what I have wanted to do all of my life. Ultimately, it’s because I like to learn new things. If you want to be a journalist, you want to be a lifelong student.” Me.
“The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything. Except what is worth knowing. Journalism, conscious of this, and having tradesman-like habits, supplies their demands.” Oscar Wilde.
“A news sense is really a sense of what is important, what is vital, what has color and life – what people are interested in. That’s journalism.” Burton Rascoe.
“Journalism’s ultimate purpose is to inform the reader, to bring him each day a letter from home and never to permit the serving of special interests.” Arthur Ochs Sulzberger.
