Refreshing honesty

Sharyl is top of the line as a reporter. She backs her research with data. Wish there were more journalists like her.

Great piece

This was just about the most honest critique I’ve heard on journalism in years and by a journalist herself. But this is what I have come to expect from Ms Atkinson. Her critique is what I have been feeling for years but hadn’t heard a real journalist say it other than Lara Logan-but only recently. This should be standard teaching material for journalism students. Sadly, I don’t expect that to happen, certainly not any time soon.

Love hearing Sheryl’s insider views

I love Sheryl’s voice and cadence— really professional and easy to listen to. The ethics in journalism topic is interesting and she should share more of her experience and knowledge in this area. I just hope a lot of young impressionable journalists ate listening too!!
