— Biden’s 2020 Party Platform Proposal Seeks to Abolish America’s Suburban Communities – WARNER TODD HUSTON
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/07/11/bidens-2020-party-platform-proposal-seeks-to-abolish-americas-suburban-communities/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Joe Biden’s radical proposal for the Democrat Party platform for 2020 seeks to put an end to America’s suburban communities by forcing low-income housing into every neighborhood and flooding every community with immigrants, legal or otherwise. The proposal, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide instant amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship for the 22 million illegal aliens now living in the nation. Astoundingly, it would also give legal status to all the world’s refugees regardless of the legitimacy of their claim to the status.)

https://townhall.com/columnists/wayneallynroot/2020/07/12/was-this-our-last-fourth-of-july-n2572321
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2014, I wrote the book “The Murder of the Middle Class.” Don’t look now, but sadly … tragically … it’s really happening. The left is crazy, extreme, radical, violent and ready for civil war. The Republican right — outside of President Trump — is a bunch of pathetic wimps ready to raise the white flag. We are the closest we’ve ever been to losing America. Have you ever seen as many spineless Republican politicians as we see today? Black Lives Matter is a Marxist group that is said to fund the Democratic National Committee. Republican Sen. Mike Braun says he supports Black Lives Matter. He also supports eliminating qualified immunity for cops. That’s the end of police in America. With Republicans like him, who needs enemies? Republican Sen. Mitt Romney marched with Black Lives Matter. How can anyone be such a dupe?)

I should write a book about that. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. They outrageously painted the graduate business courses that I had taken at Loyola and the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul a) as being not job-related, b) as not helping me carry out my job duties, and c) as being taken by me to get a job in the private sector.)

— Wall Street campaign to hire Black talent isn’t going so well – Kelsey Butler (DIERSEN: GAO audits federal financial industry regulators. Compare and contrast how GAO treats its Democrat employees who are minority, female, and/or younger. GAO focuses on retaining and promoting its Democrat employees who are minority, female, and/or younger. To make way for them, GAO gets rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who do not make GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. Extremely few GAO employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: For Black professionals who get job offers on Wall Street, there’s pay and benefits to consider. But also isolation, bias and racism. As big U.S. banks and asset managers vow at long last to address the industry’s dearth of Black executives, those who have been around a while warn progress will require more than the usual hiring spree. Offices remain alienating and even inhospitable. Most organizations lack mentors who can help guide the way up the org chart. Recruiters say top Black candidates have learned to be skeptical. “Folks are looking for welcome signs,” said Anthony Wright, founder of Diversity Recruiters, a Seattle-based executive search firm that helps clients including banks with inclusive hiring. “And when you’re a minority, the sign doesn’t say ‘Welcome,’ the sign says ‘Is there anybody there that looks like me?’ ”)

(DIERSEN: What do the following have to say about this: a) the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the Milton Township Republican Organization; b) Republican candidates on November 3, 2020 ballots in DuPage County; and c) the leaders of DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton who have presented themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican?)
https://www.facebook.com/events/307850140389512/
(FROM THE POSTING: The Retirement of the Majority Rally will be on 7/14/2020 live at Facebook and at 9:00AM at the North East corner of County Farm Rd. & Manchester Rd. in Wheaton. Parking will be at 421 N. County Farm Rd. We will be gathering at the corner just across the parking lot from where the county board will meet. Sign up here for up to date information https://actionnetwork.org/events/the-retirement-of-the-majority-rally-catch-22-before-2022/ For a map go to bit.ly/7-14Map. Current Hosts: Indivisible DuPage, Naper Youth for BLM, Elmhurst Alliance for Racial Reform, Lombard Allies for Racial Justice, TIER, Carol Stream Community Activists, and Hinsdale for BLM. These groups will celebrate the end of the one party rule in DuPage County. We are educating the community about 22 state policy initiatives that could be done in the next legislative session that would stop killing BIPOC when they are signed into law. (A more succinct document is coming but they are here bit.ly/Legislative-Options.) Peter DiCianni needs to be held accountable and this protest will ensure that the public will not look away. The reality is that we live in a one party county that has lost the social contract required to govern. This event will celebrate the retirement of their majority rule over the second largest county in the state, which we predict will be by the end of this year. This event will be an authentic BIPOC activist fair directed at young people organized with and by young people. There will be a large community art build, with speakers ranging from youth activists to candidates and educators. We will be directing public commenters to the board, during the entire meeting. There will be a free COVID testing Car Caravan. There will be people to register voters and help them learn about the different electoral issues happening in the next 120 days. There will be celebration cupcakes and music to mark the retirement! There will be a march as well. We will ensure that attendees learn how to get involved, get a civics education, participate in a community renaissance and have fun. This will be socially distanced, masks required and they will be offered. Please bring, water, umbrellas and sunscreen. This is in conjunction with our summer activism school. If you or your group wants to cohost or be involved please pm us. We want as many people to make statements as we can whether they come or not. Choose 7/14 https://dupagecounty-ktgfp.formstack.com/forms/publiccomment Here are our demands. 1. There should be a clearly defined method for censuring elected officials in DuPage County. Not having one is unacceptable. 2. Peter DiCianni should be censured for his actions in the many videos and in his written words. If he isn’t it will be clear public accountability of elected officials is gone. 3. Peter DiCianni should be removed from chairing the Health and Human Services Board for his unacceptable behavior. If he isn’t, it will be clear they don’t have acceptable standards. 4. He has violated the ethics Agreement he swore an oath to. He should be removed. A vote needs to be taken, even if it is in the court of public opinion.)

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/facebook-just-lost-one-of-the-biggest-advertisers-in-the-world-for-the-rest-of-2020/ar-BB160DXf
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facebook has been the subject of criticism for its decision not to take action on statements from President Donald Trump that warned that looters during protests would be shot. While the platform has in recent years taken numerous steps to crack down on hate speech, civil rights groups remain critical of the social platform’s role in the rise of extremism along with the latitude it gives to the president. Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone said the company invests billions of dollars a year to keep its platform safe. “We’ve opened ourselves up to a civil rights audit, and we have banned 250 white supremacist organizations from Facebook and Instagram,” Stone said in an email. Stone also stressed a recent European Union report that said Facebook identified 90 percent of hate speech before it was reported and acts faster that Twitter or YouTube. The Facebook protest was mobilized by the NAACP, the Anti-Defamation League and other groups such as Color of Change and Sleeping Giants, a group that targets advertisers that support certain right-wing content, among others.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— Federal Legislation Would Allow Americans to Sue Big Tech Companies – Christine Misner
https://illinoisfamily.org/uncategorized/federal-legislation-would-allow-americans-to-sue-big-tech-companies/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has introduced a bill that would allow Americans to sue companies such as Twitter, Google, and Facebook for censoring political speech. The bill comes as an activist NBC journalist contacted Google to demonetize The Federalist and then reported on it. The Limiting Section 230 Immunity to Good Samaritans Act, which was introduced June 17 would amend Section 230 of the Communications Act of 1934, is co-sponsored by U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Braun (R-IN), Tom Cotton (R-AR), and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA). “Big Tech companies like Twitter, Google and Facebook,” Hawley said, “have used their power to silence political speech from conservatives without any recourse for users. Section 230 has been stretched and rewritten by courts to give these companies outlandish power over speech without accountability. Congress should act to ensure bad actors are not given a free pass to censor and silence their opponents.” Under the terms of the bill, companies would be prohibited from receiving Section 230 immunity unless they “update their terms of service to promise to operate in good faith and pay a $5,000 fine (or actual damages, if higher) plus attorney’s fees if they violate that promise.” It would also let users sue companies for breaching the terms of good faith and prohibit companies from discriminating when enforcing terms of service and failing to honor their promises.)

https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/06/25/4-things-the-liberal-media-wont-tell-you-about-black-lives-matter/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 3. What Does the Organization Want? Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation doesn’t hide its more out-of-the mainstream views, although many of them are stated in broad terms. “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable,” the organization says on its website. The website uses the word “comrades” several times, in one instance to say: “We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.” Although the organization states that “We are unapologetically Black in our positioning,” it focuses heavily on something that traditionally has not been part of African American activism—sexual orientation and gender identity: “We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead. … We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence. … We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.” Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation says it is a “queer-affirming network.” “When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise),” it says.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200616/feder-winds-amy-jacobson-wins-battle-to-cover-pritzker-news-conferences
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In what supporters are hailing as a victory for press freedom, Amy Jacobson has won her battle to attend Governor J.B. Pritzker’s media briefings as a journalist, Robert Feder writes. Jacobson, who co-hosts mornings on Salem Media news/talk WIND 560-AM with Dan Proft, sued Pritzker and his press secretary, Jordan Abudayyeh, earlier this month for barring Jacobson from daily news conferences. Pritzker said Jacobson had forfeited her status as a reporter by “taking an extreme position” when she spoke at a Reopen Illinois rally May 16 protesting the governor’s stay-at-home order during the pandemic. Backed by Liberty Justice Center, a Chicago-based conservative public-interest litigation center, Jacobson and Salem claimed Pritzker’s ban violated Jacobson’s First Amendment rights to freedom of the press and free speech as well as her rights to equal protection and due process. On Monday Pritzker and Abudayyeh rescinded the ban and invited Jacobson “to participate in the Governor’s press access on the same basis as other journalists.” The walk-back came in the form of a letter from the office of Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul. “Ms. Jacobson may participate fully in the Governor’s press access, including but not limited to press briefings and conferences, to the same extent that any other media is allowed to participate,” read the letter, which was signed by Assistant Attorney General Michael Dierkes.)

My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

The Chicago Fed said it terminated Mr. Uhlig’s contract effective that day. What was Uhlig’s sin? A series of tweets criticizing Black Lives Matter’s call to defund police departments.)

— Trump Warns Against ‘Falsely Labeling Tens of Millions of Decent Americans As Racists’ – Susan Jones (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Trump-haters label Trump supporters as being racists. To label someone as being a racist in America today is like labeling someone as being a Jew in Germany during the 1930s and 1940s. Needless-to-say, individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are labeled as being racist should sue those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that labeled them as being racist. Needless-to-say, the Republican Party should sue the Democrat Party.)

I would focus on those have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against the aforesaid.)

— Wheaton Community Update
https://www.wheaton.il.us/civicalerts.aspx?AID=410
(FROM THE UPDATE: Many of the communities surrounding Wheaton experienced a high volume of criminal activity at shopping malls, government buildings, and business districts last evening. This disruption also caused public transportation such as CTA and Metra to temporarily suspend services in some areas. While Wheaton’s businesses were not directly affected last evening, the Wheaton Police Department encourages its residents and community members to stay safe by following these safety tips. Expect delayed openings of some area businesses. Check or follow a business’s social media or website for changes to hours of operation. When commuting, travelling, or planning a shopping trip to other neighboring communities check local news to ensure it is safe to do so and the business is open. If you witness criminal or suspicious activity, say something. Get to a safe location and call 9-1-1 for police response. The Wheaton Police Department will continue to maintain an increased presence throughout our community in the coming days and encourages its residents and community members to stay up-to-date by following the City of Wheaton on Facebook, Twitter (@CityOfWheaton), and email updates.)

CNN
— Nancy Pelosi called President Trump ‘morbidly obese.’ Is he? – Chris Cillizza (DIERSEN: How soon, if not already, will employers and organizations officially get rid of their employees and members who have a BMI over 30, who are old, and/or who have health problems including diabetes?)
https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/19/politics/nancy-pelosi-donald-trump-fat-hydroxychloroquine/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Generally speaking, it defines obesity as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher. (BMI is calculated by taking “a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters,” according to the CDC website.) Within “obese,” the CDC has three distinctions: 1) Those with a BMI between 30 and 35 2) those with a BMI between 35 and 40 and 3) those with a BMI over 40, which the CDC categorizes as having “extreme” or “severe” obesity. While the CDC doesn’t describe that third category as “morbid obesity,” it is referred to that way by other sites including Web MD (aka the scourge of every hypochondriac’s life). How large would you need to be to qualify as having “severe” or “morbid” obesity? According to this BMI calculator, a 6 foot tall man weighing 300 pounds would have a BMI of 41 — and would be considered in a state of “morbid” obesity. Which is not Donald Trump, at least according to the White House physician. In his February 2019 annual physical, Trump, who is 6’3″, tipped the scales at 243 pounds. That gave him a BMI of 30.4 — just over the edge of obesity but far from the technical definition of “severe” or “extreme” (or “morbid”) obesity.)

— Crucial Latino voters seek more attention from Biden – Saundra Amrhein, Simon Lewis (DIERSEN: To promote preference giving is to reject equal opportunity. To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. To give preference to Latinos is to discriminate against Blacks, Asians, Whites, etc. To give preference to women, younger people, people who have less money, non-Protestants, non-German Americans, non-draft avoiders, and/or to those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time is to discriminate against men, older people, people who have more money, Protestants, German Americans, draft avoiders, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

https://www.natlawreview.com/article/covid-19-plan-now-bringing-back-your-workforce-part-iv
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Before we discuss the guidance itself, we offer this important context. Some epidemiologists and other experts note that the most important metric relating to resuming more full-scale economic activity is getting the rate of spread down to less than one new infection per existing infection. This is known as the R0 factor. The Massachusetts High Tech Council, for example, recommends that to get that metric to R<1, employers should segment their workforces by vulnerability to COVID-19, bringing back younger and healthier workers first, and workers over 60 or with certain medical conditions last. The goals are laudable: to continue driving down the infection rate and protect the health care system. But is the practice legal?)

https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2020/may/19/nancy-pelosi/no-he-not-morbidly-obese/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Officially, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not define the threshold needed for someone to be considered “morbidly obese.” Instead, the CDC says that “Class 3” obesity, sometimes categorized as “extreme” or “severe” obesity, is defined as having a body-mass index, or BMI, of 40 or higher. Other medical sources list a definition of “morbidly obese” as equivalent to a BMI of 40 or higher. Some available data about Trump comes from his most recent periodic physical exam. In a 2019 memo, Trump’s physician Dr. Sean Conley said Trump was 6 feet, 3 inches tall and 243 pounds. Trump, who was 72 at the time, had gained 4 pounds since his 2018 exam, when his previous doctor, Ronny Jackson, said Trump’s “overall health is excellent” but “he would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates and from a routine exercise regimen.” Officially, Trump’s height and weight would correlate to a BMI of 30.1, just a bit over the 30.0 level to be considered obese — the lowest of three levels. That is not high enough to count as Class 3 obesity.)

ROBERT FEDER
— WIND’s Amy Jacobson barred from governor’s media briefings (DIERSEN: I do not claim to be impartial. I am conservative and I state that I am conservative. I am Republican and I state that I am Republican. It is called full disclosure. According to Democrats and to according RINOs, only those who claim to be impartial can be journalists or reporters. I should write a book about mainstream journalists and mainstream reporters who falsely claim to be impartial. They talk, act, and/or write like they are not only liberal and/or Democrat, but like they are anti-conservative and/or anti-Republican. Further, I should write a book about pot pushers who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in DuPage County who sided with other pot pushers against me when I spoke out against pot at a DuPage County Board meeting last year. They said that lobbyists cannot be journalists or reporters. They said that I was a lobbyist, and that therefore, I was not a journalist or a reporter, that is, they charged me with failing to register as a lobbyist with the State of Illinois. They know that by definition, lobbyists are paid to lobby and that I have never been paid to lobby. I should have sued them.)
https://www.robertfeder.com/2020/05/19/winds-amy-jacobson-barred-governors-media-briefings/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jacobson’s participation prompted others in the media to question whether she had forfeited her standing as a journalist by becoming an advocate and activist. Capitol Fax editor Rich Miller wrote: “Give a speech at a rally and then expect to be treated like a reporter? Nope.” Chicago Tribune chief political reporter Rick Pearson tweeted: “And we are the ones accused of being ‘fake news.’” On Monday Pritzker’s press secretary, Jordan Abudayyeh, notified Jacobson that she was persona non grata. “This weekend you attended and spoke at a political rally to fire up the crowd opposing the Governor’s policies to combat COVID-19,” Abudayyeh wrote in an email Jacobson made public. “That rally was attended by people holding hateful Nazi imagery. An impartial journalist would not have attended that rally in that capacity and therefore you will no longer be invited to participate as an impartial journalist.” Jeff Reisman, regional vice president and general manager of AM 560 The Answer, questioned the decision and said he hoped Jacobson would be readmitted. “I am disappointed that the governor has decided to limit the scope of questions he receives from the media,” Reisman said. “Amy Jacobson has had a long career as a journalist in Chicago, and she has routinely been asking questions that AM 560’s listeners want to have answered. “In this time of uncertainty, I would hope that Gov. Pritzker and his staff would be more transparent and accountable to the people of Illinois. Picking and choosing which media outlets are allowed to ask questions creates the impression that Gov. Pritzker isn’t willing to answer difficult questions. I hope this decision would be reversed immediately and that Amy would be given access once again.” Muller also defended Jacobson, saying: “Why is it we have to agree with Governor Pritzker to ask him questions? . . . Regular people are hurting. That is who Amy and I speak with on our different radio shows. Pritzker allows no followup questions and no real questions from anyone but sycophants.” Jacobson has harshly criticized Pritzker’s handling of the shutdown and challenged the governor on why his family recently traveled from a home in Florida to one in Wisconsin in apparent violation of his statewide order. She said she plans to talk about the ban on Tuesday’s show. Before she joined the news/talk station in 2010, Jacobson worked for more than 10 years as a general assignment reporter at NBC-owned WMAQ-Channel 5.)

FORBES
— COVID-19 Recession Projected To Cost Jobs For 22% Middle Income Older Workers, 15% Higher Income – Ted Knutson (DIERSEN: From what I see, ever-increasingly, businesses and organizations will use coronavirus to get rid of their employees and members who are older, obese, and/or who have health problems including diabetes.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/tedknutson/2020/05/18/covid-19-recession-projected-to-cost-jobs-for-22-middle-income-older-workers-15-higher-income/#404273316206
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ghilarducci says this recession is likely to hit older workers harder than economic downturns of the past because the widely publicized larger vulnerability of the aged to COVID-19 is going to increase age discrimination in hiring. She adds older workers are usually the first to get laid off and the last to be re-hired.)

FEDERAL NEWS NETWORK
— Coronavirus and career – Mike Causey (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who demonize, denigrate, and condemn federal employees and federal retires. I was a federal employee for almost 30 years and I have been a federal retiree for almost 23 years. Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against the aforesaid.)
https://federalnewsnetwork.com/mike-causey-federal-report/2020/05/coronavirus-and-career-the-a-rod-j-lo-rule/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: They say that the coronavirus is a threat, a deadly threat, to all of us regardless of who we are and where we live. That regardless of who we are, where we live and what we do, we are all in the same boat. And that’s true — up to a point. Then it isn’t anymore. And while we can’t pick our parents, decide our birth date or where we grow up — Bangladesh or Brooklyn — the career path we followed is very important. Especially when times get tough — like now — when having more money, which is almost always a good thing, is better than having little or none. Which is also true when times are good — having a good job or steady income is a good thing, now more than ever! And even if you believe that all of us are created equal, life teaches us that that doesn’t last long. While they face many of the same challenges we all do, some people are in a slightly better place at times like now.)

FED SMITH
— DISGUSTING, OUTRAGEOUS: No COLA in 2021? – Ralph R. Smith (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the purchasing power of the following is dramatically reduced: my Civil Service Retirement System pension, my Social Security, and my retirement savings.)
https://www.fedsmith.com/2020/05/18/no-cola-2021/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: COLA Does Not Match Retiree Expense Increases Since 2000, Social Security COLAs have increased benefits by 53% but the prices of what retirees typically buy have increased by about 99.3%. Medicare premiums and out-of-pocket costs, housing costs, and homeowner’s insurance costs—have been the most rapidly-rising costs in the past year. So far in 2020, there has been a decrease of 0.27% in the third quarter of 2019 over the relevant Consumer Price Index used to calculate any COLA increase. As discussed in previous FedSmith articles, the Social Security COLA is based on the consumer-price index (CPI) for urban workers. Another CPI, known as CPI-E, tracks the spending of older Americans. The difference in these CPI measurements is largely in the cost of health care and housing. Medicare premiums and homeowners’ insurance often grow rapidly from year over year. The COLA adjustments do not take into account the larger percentage spent by older Americans on these expenses.)

I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year. GAO analysts do much of what journalist do including interviewing, gathering facts, summarizing facts, analyzing facts, and writing reports. GAO Analysts develop recommendations to improve government operations.)
https://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/journalism-major-overview
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A JOURNALISM MAJOR studies how to report, write and distribute news to a particular audience. Journalism majors learn how to research and interview and then communicate the information they uncover with clarity and accuracy. Not long ago, most journalism programs gave students the choice between print or broadcast tracks. Today, many programs have adapted with the changing news industry and consolidated skills into a single track to teach writing and reporting for all mediums. Depending on the school and program, students are still able to specialize in areas like broadcast, data, investigative or political journalism. Students with a natural curiosity, a desire to communicate truth, and an interest in researching, interviewing and storytelling should consider a major in journalism.)
