English around us

A world of words

Quit

Resign from a job.

At first I thought that Superman himself had quitted. I wouldn’t have blamed him. So busy occupation, too many demands for a generous hand. Then, reading the piece of news I learnt that his alter ego Clark Kent doesn’t want to be a reporter any more, in protest at the present situation of worldwide journalists.

Is this a job at risk? Would our world be the same without journalists? How can we build our own opinion without a reliable account of events?
