I know this is OLD news...but I was just researching on the topic and came across a CNN transcript for a live broadcast on March 14th about the tornado attack in downtown Atlanta. The CNN headquarters is just a 2 min drive from my place. I don't read/watch news, but reading this, even a month later, is still quite exciting.
I remember once I was hyped up about being a journalist, years ago. It was after watching an Andy Lau movie..can't remember the details but really showed dedication to the job and societal duty of journalists. I am no writer, so the fire died down pretty quickly. But bits of it just came back to me as I was reading the transcript, the dialogue between the broadcaster and the reporters stationed in different locations.. the parts with Don Lemon (stationed right outside CNN Center from the transcript) really caught my attention. My first thought was..so this was why he became a journalist. Really eager trying to capture the atmosphere, the situation, to the best he can.
