JOURNALISTS AND REPORTERS
In the morning, we usually read a newspaper with our breakfast. On Sundays, some people read two or three newspapers. They buy the newspapers because they like their journalists and reporters. The journalists and reporters make the newspaper interesting. They give us new ideas.
Journalists usually work in a newspaper office or at a TV station. They sit down at their desk and write their ideas on a modern computer. They tell us about important people or events. They know many politicians and tell us about political news. Journalists are important people because we get some ideas from them.
Other media people are reporters. Reporters go to different events and find news. They write about sports or social events. Sometimes they go to the stadium and talk to the football players. Sometimes they go to the cinemas and tell us about the films. Sometimes they go to dangerous places, such as Bosnia. Many reporters die every year because they want to give us important news.
Reporters and journalists have interesting jobs, but they are dangerous jobs too.
