Think about this … and post your comment (and I know you will have fun with this one!)

Have some fun with this fact:

To legally work in any of the following occupations, you must be specifically trained, and take a test of competency (licensing):

lawyer,

cosmetologist

truck driver

general contractor

doctor

nurse

architect

life guard

masseuse

cab driver

(and I am sure you can add more to the list.)

 

And now get this: how do you become a journalist?

No specific training required, no test of competency or good ethics…just say you are a journalist.  That’s all.

Note: I am not suggesting that we license journalists…merely noting this.)
