Thank you for sharing this Lauryn. I am a journalist in Singapore and although the environment for journalists is different in my homeland from that in the USA, your story reminded me of why I became a journalist too — to tell the truth and the stories that needed to be told. And I support the local newspapers because when all is said and done, their journalists most subscribe to the ethos and character of their craft.
So keep plugging Lauryn and encourage your colleagues to do the same. They have at least one fan in me.
