Journal- Diane Sawyer: Oprah Winfrey Presents Master Class

Journalists are known to have the responsibility to report on the facts about current events and give a voice to those who do not have the opportunity to be heard.

However, nowadays, the state of journalism and news reporting is often questioned for its validity and a topic of controversial debate for many people. A journalist's credibility is constantly tested or interrogated.

Regardless, I was drawn to the story of Diane Sawyer, not particularly for her reputation as a journalist, but because of her intriguing journey and sharp characteristics.

"Wake Up Curious, and determined to Find the Answer."

These UNFORGETTABLE words continue to ring in my mind.

Discover for yourself the power of CURIOSITY:

Keep in mind, nevertheless, every STORY told or written, from a movie, book or news report, is presented from the PERCEPTION of its interlocutor. The valiant goal of journalism is to be an objective source of information that presents all sides of a story without influence or prejudice. A noble attempt, but to me everyone's perception, whether of a similar event or other, is DISTINCTIVE and different; always diversify your source of information and formulate your own educated opinion.

Journalism at its best is when the journalist or reporter delivers the news speaking from within, from his or her own truth. We all instinctively recognize and relate to TRUTH when it is revealed to us.


With Love,
