As a journalism student, my professors rarely tell us about the dangers of journalism. Most of the time they talk about what good interviewing is, how to work the camera, how to create fabulous multimedia, and watching the news twenty-four seven. The calm anchor on the screen seems like a smoke screen now. Journalist can be in dangerous situations. In fact, many people are often out to get journalist. Recently a journalist was released after being detained in Venezuela for two days. I recently read that journalist are missing, to this day. Some are even killed. Now I know why they make us take geography. It is not smart to go to another country without knowing its history and the lingo of the land. Lesson Learned.
