    My name is Kay Dailey, a freelance journalist; as well as a wife and mother. I am on a passionate quest to get the truth out about issues which relate to family, marriage, and social perspectives of business, employment, spirituality, legal and much more.

    Every day people are met with challenges, discussing issues; either at home, in business, in the political arena or abroad. Conversely, although journalistic styles and approaches might differ there is always something missing when it comes to “real life” drama when reported in the news we see daily.
    People want to know the truth of the matter, and most want to know how to handle their issues concerning ”their life.”

    Notably, not all people live in fancy mansions, not all people have enough money to pay their bills; and, some people are fighting to keep homes, find homes, and find jobs. Here is also where we address barriers to life situations.

    As a journalism student I find that news is what we live everyday; and, most importantly, I notice that those who report the news are slacking in areas; missing valid issues that are not considered.

    It's all about the gathering and it's all about truth.

    Glad to meet your acquaintance,

    Peace to you!

    Peace MsKayDailey,

    I think you'll find those issues "missing valid issues" are indeed considered. The Journalism that you see is not an ignorant discipline, it is highly tuned and aligned with an over-riding purpose. if you look hard enough, you will see clearly what that purpose is. And you will see that it has very little to do with the truth.

    Peace again.. and Welcome to Destee.com

    Actually, Journalism isn't the problem. The commercialization of Journalism is. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    No, but there's countless examples of free journalism. Sometimes, for instance, when someone on this site reports the local happenings, or even the international happenings, that's an example of free journalism.

    I suppose you can say that really "White Commercialization" is the problem. Yet--that's almost redundant in this day and age. :'(
