Journalists can report general interest just like a reporter can. Since it began before as a newspaper journalism can be anything and everything. And they report and write on a variety of things including: Politics and the war in a local and an international perspective. Health and medicine, sports, education, entertainment, and lifestyles like clothing and food. It affects what everyone can see because journalists use the telephone and the Internet to gather information so then they can release it to the general public online and on Television.
