The Jandoli Institute hosted a live Twitter Chat on Feb. 21 for aspiring and young journalists. Below are responses to a question from Richard Lee, the institute’s executuve director.
Well idk. It’s just hard. I shop at Aldis for groceries. I can’t spend money the way my friends do. It’s just a choice you have to make. Not a fun one, but you can make it fun.

Journalism has evolved before and will again. Non-profits have stepped up to address coverage gaps and newsrooms shift their priorities. I’m worried about small newsrooms and communities losing their vital reporter who attends every school board meeting. #JandoliChat

I’m encouraged when two (or more) news media pair up. In #RochesterNY, the NPR station runs @roccitynews, an urban weekly. In NYC, @WNYC bought & runs @Gothamist, which does strong digital news. Journalism is evolving, opportunities abound. #JandoliChat

From @richleeonline: A journalism prof once told me: Journalists get to go to the places everyone wants to go to, talk with the people everyone wants to talk with and ask the questions everyone wants to ask. #JandoliChat
