What do you hope to gain from this community?
I would like to get in touch with professional journalists. I am currently an undergraduate student (will graduate in feb. 2013) and would like to get a career in journalism myself. I want to know how journalists feel about their own position and job. I will write my bachelor's thesis next semester, and am considering researching the position of (embedded) war journalists.
