    There are two kinds of journalists: traditional journalists who work for a newspaper or more and freelance writers who get payment for each their writing. To be accepted their writing, freelance writers have to know the tone, language the newspaper uses or is interested. Nowadays, readers of printed newspapers are reduced. The trend of online newspapers are developed as it is updated every minute, hour.

    One of journalist's function is reliable for readers, listeners and viewers. In reality, due to the secret of nation, the local authorities creates impact, influence on editors to cut part of journalists' writing. So journalists' writing cannot tell the whole story. Or rich people use money to prevent journalists to the truth.

    I watch the news. Read the newspaper (spelling errors and all) and I wonder doesn't any one deal with the 5 W's (and H) any more. News has become commentary start to finish.
