Reasons to Get into Journalism

The blog GoodMorningGloucester has a video interview with Richard Gaines, a reporter for the Gloucester Daily Times and formerly for the Boston Phoenix. I love what he says about why to go into journalism:
"It's a calling. If you enjoy fighting with bullies, if you enjoy fighting with hypocrites, if you enjoy finding people who have inspiring stories to tell. ... It's taking the moving picture of life and putting it into little segments that people can read. "
This is the second part of the interview. Here is part one.
