journalist

It's time to ditch the jargon and welcome back proper English

The job of a journalist is to tell people what’s going on. It’s really as simple as that.

Relaying events and reporting on issues and policies which affect people’s everyday lives.

A journalist’s job is to be in the courts, in Parliament, at Government announcements and in company briefings on behalf of the public and then to report back through the pages of a newspaper or on screen, telling the nation what has just been carried out in their name and at their expense.
