I Believe…Revisited

Going through my ‘I Believe’ list, not much has really changed individually. Some of them, I believe even more—lots of the election coverage has solidified my belief #3, “that the future of news will be to adapt as quickly as possible with culture and technology.” Lots of conversations are being had about false news, citizen […]

Reflecting on “I Believe” Statements

Most of my beliefs about journalism have stayed relatively the same. The biggest difference is my believe that “the biggest problem with journalism today is revenue and a decrease in local journalism.” While this is still a big challenge to producing good journalism, I now believe that the biggest problem facing journalism is the inundation of fake news […]

A lot of the statements I made surrounding journalism at the beginning of the semester were actually pretty accurate.

I believe – Then and Now

Looking back on my “I Believe” assignment, there are still a lot of things that remain unchanged. I still firmly believe that the news affects my day-to-day life, that it’s hard to write unbiased material, and that it’s impossible to please everyone. However, as the semester has gone on, a lot of my views on […]

Reflecting on my “I believe” Statements

Overall, I think many of my beliefs about journalism and news stayed relatively the same throughout the class with a few small exceptions. Two beliefs definitely stayed the same throughout this class, and they go hand in hand: “I believe that my greatest strength as a journalist is my passion” and “I believe that my […]

“I Believe” Reflection

Most of my beliefs about journalism still hold true from the beginning of the semester, but with an expanded understanding. I thought that the most challenging thing about being a journalist would be finding reliable sources, but I never thought about why it is sometimes difficult to reach out and contact people for a story.

My Beliefs: Before and After

With little journalism experience at the start of the semester, I relied on my consumption of news to guide my beliefs and ideals of journalism. While maintaining the same views and beliefs around the consumption of news, I believe I now have more experience to strengthen my beliefs around journalistic production. Most of my beliefs […]

Looking back through my I Believe statements, not many of them have changed a lot.

I Believe Revisited

When writing my “I Believe” statements when I first started this semester at Michigan, I definitely had a very similar mindset as what I do now. I still think journalism is very important, and by joining the Michigan Daily here on campus, I’m also actively engaging in ways that could bring me towards working in […]
