Any journalists out there on Ello?
If so, then this column I wrote is for you.
For many years, journalists have seen their business go under a lot of changes. For many, it's almost a constant process of reorganizing, layoffs and new technology, which in turn kicks off the process again.
Most have seen newsrooms dwindle in number, seeing colleagues and friends go out the door, sometimes never getting another job in journalism.
Worst of all, Donald Trump happened. With his presidency, we've seen many people turn on journalism and journalists. Sometimes they claim that inconvenient facts are "fake news" sometime they outright attack journalists.
Whatever it it is. It's a dark time for journalism. Journalists, which I consider myself one of, and factual reporting are under assault.
