Whatever you do, stay away from journalism school. I have a degree, but it isn't in journalism. That's why I'm still able to think for myself.

When I went to college over 25 years ago, my Major was "Mass Communications". A large part of that curriculum was journalism.

I dropped out, because even though I wouldn't have called myself a convservative back then, I was paying large amounts of money to a school that was just telling me what to think; there was no real LEARNING happening, I was just buying a piece of paper that said I could belong to their club.

I moved to California and tried school again a couple of times, but had the same problem; paying for an expensive brainwashing camp. It was all about conforming, and I couldn't be bothered, I could learn more from reading books.

While in California, I worked as a security guard at a TV/Radio Station for a while. It was very interesting. Liberals were definitely in charge and set the tone. Even many of the staff were ex-hippies; the 60's lived on.

They would hire and promote their own, so if you were a conservative, you would have to keep quiet about it if you wanted to get anywhere. San Francisco might have been an extreme case, but since most of the people who work in the media are Democrats, I would guess that it's not too different elsewhere.

Yes, I was a little suprised, I thought I would get something more artsy-fartsy.

Perhaps a lot of bloggers get high scores for journalism? It seems a likely match/tendency for a blogger.
