Boy, if someone needs a hug these days it’s the news reporters. For the most part a good reporter is a very hard working person. Some have allowed their personal views to influence their reports but most still try to just report. It’s a tough job, rarely at home, unable to maintain relationships, often in dangerous places… it’s rewarding but taxing. The biggest issues seem to come when they feel they are bigger than the story they are reporting. Then it does become a problem. So give them a hug and remind them they are human, no better and no worse than the rest of us.
How to celebrate – If you know a reporter, hug them. Support those on social media that are actually doing their jobs. Find a reporter you know you can trust.
