“Journalism that Matters’’

(Sung to the tune of Jacob ’s Ladder)


We are journos, getting sadder,

As the bottom line grows badder;

Losing readers to online chatter

We need Journalism That Matters;


Conversations, not a lecture,

Telling stories, not conjecture;

We know something’s got to give,

If battered journalists can live!


Master narrative, where are thee?

Can the public join the party?

We need hope, and joy and fun,’

Or stick a fork in us, we’re done;


Now we packing going home,

Taking with us, notes in a tome,

Will we change the world we live in?

That’s the challenge we’ve be given;
