Thanksgiving Time

Tell us what in journalism you are thankful for

Holidays are a reminder that we’ve gone another turn around the sun, a time to take time to take stock.

And of the many ways to celebrate Thanksgiving—touch football, Maalox, sleeping outside of Best Buy—let’s remember that the one that’s probably least divorced from the day’s traditional meaning is to reflect back and give thanks.

Last year, when we asked what you were thankful for in the world of journalism, people mentioned their favorite sportswriter or tweeter. Someone was thankful for having a job. And a journalist from Uganda was thankful for the new career he launched after his radio station was shut down by the government.

That was a sobering reminder of how much so many of us have to be thankful for.

So this year, we’d again like to ask you to tell us what you’re thankful for in the world of journalism. Happy Holidays.
