As important as electronic & digital media are, there will always be room for the printed word & journalism students need to know that! Yes many newspapers & periodicals are in a precarious financial position, but newspapers built this Dominion from sea-to-sea with their coverage of the building of Canada's national railroad! The pictures that accompanied the articles showed peoples reaction to it, including that of students & their family's as they immigrated! We need newspapers & news people more than ever! Never lose your respect for printed media, even if you work in electronic journalism.
