In this election, it seems a voter faces the decision between the lesser of two evils: Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Both candidates have their flaws, certainly. But I think that when it comes down to it, Trump is the more flawed of the two. Trump has no government experience. As Clinton p...

The media always must remain cautious and conscientious of how they cover politics, especially during an election year. But this year, Donald Trump has changed the game. As an aspiring journalist, I am frightened by Trump’s attitude toward and treatment of the media. To the general public, it m...

Horace Greeley, a 19th-century editor of the New York Tribune, once said that “Journalism will kill you, but it will keep you alive while you’re at it.” And that’s what journalism does for me. This practice is a strange one. It’s a stress-builder and a time-consumer, but it’s also the ...
