We are journalists. We are proud of what we do. We are tired of bad press about the press. We are trying to be "team players." We are terrified of more layoffs and paycuts. We would like to produce quality work without 'obamasux99' posting some non-sequitur rant at the end of it. We complain because we want things to be better. We would like some respect, plz. We are journalists.

I don’t remember the first time my father brought a newspaper home, but I do remember that it used to happen every day. I grew up to the smell of newspaper and to the sound of a news radio. I couldn’t be anything else but a journalist, It was my dream and now that Greece is going through such tough times I don’t even come close to the thought of quitting. As an online editor, I am thrilled to cover the news real time as it happens. Given the current situation in my country, it’s almost as history in the making.
I am a journalist. And damn proud of it.
