When a mid-market television news operation can run a commercial within
the body of its newscast disguised as a "news item" bought and paid for
by the client and call that journalism, we're in a sad state of affairs.
ASK A MENTOR
-Is there money in a journalism career?-
Question: Are there enough well-paying journalism jobs to go around, or
should I start considering a career in communications? Jeff Gaulin,
manager of Canada's largest career website for media and communications
professionals, offers his insight.
-The reporter's battle in Afghanistan-

feed them and give them a place to sleep, write and edit. Journalism
ethics are a constant issue. Allison Cross describes the experience of

-The paid vs. free debate-
Is a completely ad-supported business model a viable one for journalism?
