8 Reasons Why Journalists Are Awesome

A lot of people look down on journalists because we don't make a lot of money, we're always in a rush, we're stubborn, etc. I've heard many bad stereotypes, but here's why we're awesome.

1. Either we are a superhero or we have superhero friends.

Do you even comic book, bro? Journalism is one of the few all-access fields, which is why writers often use it as a knowledge resource for their heroes and heroines. If we aren't a superhero, we definitely have superhero friends who we give inside information to. Although, if you ask any journalist about this we will deny it. Secret identities and all that.

2. We have access to so many things.

Want to see the new Pitch Perfect movie before it's released? I can. Want to get backstage to talk to Jensen Ackles at a "Supernatural" convention? I can. We can get in anywhere. Conventions, backstages, new restaurants, movie screenings before they're released, exclusive interviews, basically anywhere. If anything, you want to be friends with a journalist.

3. We will be that annoying person who always corrects your grammar if we don't like you.

It really is, Meryl. It really is.

4. We know things.

When you're a journalist, fact-checking comes as naturally as breathing. We know how to research and that makes us dangerous.

5. If you give us a mystery, we will solve it.

There's a Sherlock Holmes inside each journalist. We love mysteries and we love following the story as it unravels. Have you heard of Watergate? We all aspire to be Woodward and Bernstein.

6. We know how to sway public opinion.

This comes with experience, but most writers know how to make an audience think or feel a certain way. The media constantly sways public opinion. We are powerful.

7. We will take pride in exposing you.

The media can make or break someone and we love using this power.

8. And we can do it all from the comfort of our beds.
