Journalism plays a big role in our life. News and constructive information can be gathered from this industry. But there is also a big responsibility being in the journalism. As a journalist, every news must undergo a very honest and efficient date gathering and investigation for the news to be fact and not just a hearsay or fiction. Most people haven't heard of JournoList, and there really isn't any reason why they would have. JournoList is a list, of sorts, of journalism entries from newspapers, bloggers, and other sources. It features discussion that is all supposed to be off the record. It has its critics that claim most, if not all of it, is contaminated by subjective truth and left-wing ideology and agendas. Some of the more ardent opposition would take a cash advance to put a stop to it. It doesn't seem to be going anywhere, however. The site remains a haven for bloggers and others for discussion and review in a forum devoted to merely discussion, some of which has wound up purported as fact. Makes you wonder how much credibility <a rev="vote for" href="http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/03/17/journolist-secrecy-objectivity/">JournoList</a> has.
