Book Ghost Writing As a Process

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

It’s an interesting relationship between a book ghost writer and her client, the book author. The client has the original ideas for the work, and the ghost writer is there to bring them to full fruition. In other words, they work on the book together, with the book ghost writer being a professional who does most of the actual writing of the book, while the client only assists with the ideas.

Well, not exactly. There’s more to it than that. In fact, the client or original book author is an integral part of the process, and in fact is writing his own book through the book ghost writer. Book ghost writing is a process, which I’m going to try to break down for you my way, fine-tune experienced after over a decade of book ghost writing. It begins with the client, and is finished through the work of the ghost writer.

The client starts the process, after contacting and hiring the ghost writer, by signing a book ghost writing contract with the writer outlining everything important, such as the legal rights of both parties, who exactly keeps the copyrights, who gets the credit for the book or shares it, etc. Then the client makes a small deposit, such as $5,000 to start, for keeping the professional writer’s time open to work on the book. This can be a completely non-refundable deposit, or half of it can be refundable under certain circumstances, such as the client cancelling the project or the book ghost writer being unable to begin work on it.

Once the project begins, a great first step is for the client to create a book outline and a time line laying out the book’s contents in chronological order. These documents can be sketchy at first, worked on more and filled out later, even being expanded into a table of contents as a further guide for working on the manuscript. Each document only needs to be about one page long. They engrave nothing in concrete, and each can be altered to suit the needs of the overall project.

Next, emails containing attachments in Word or Word Perfect documents, and in my case I prefer to work in Word, are exchanged between the client and the writer. The client starts this by typing out from the beginning of the book until the end, in gradual stages as needed, the book’s contents as envisioned. This can be added to later, and fully edited and rewritten by the ghost writer. Basically, the client at least needs to lay out the ideas of the book as expressed by him, and then flesh them out somewhat for the writer to have material from which to work.

The book ghost writer can do light to heavy research and add related new material by using the resources of the Internet and the local library system. The emails and phone calls between both parties assist the professional writer in shaping, creating, editing, rewriting, proofreading and fully completing the book manuscript. Along the way, the client or book author shares ideas, tells the book ghost writer how he wants his manuscript laid out and written, gives the writer details of the book, and supplies more general ideas and guidelines about the book’s materials.

It is best if the client sends all of the actual information to be worked on with his ghost writer in several email attachments, rather than sending them over the phone or in the bodies of emails as written copy. Some background materials can be on real paper, but generally ghost writers can’t work from handwritten notes, and while some ghost writers use scanners and can scan in typed documents, it’s easier to already have the documents in electronic format. MS Word is the most common software.

Phone calls can be made on a regular basis; you can also arrange Skype conferences and IM or instant message meetings. It’s best for a book ghost writer to always have written records, albeit electronic ones, of everything, so I try to avoid phone calls except for using them for info about the project, not the project itself, or to bring each other up on what’s going on in general. I like to have everything in emails and attachments whenever possible. It’s something solid and reliable in front of me, which I can check on all throughout the project.

The client basically lays out the book’s ideas and overall structure, and the ghost writer fleshes everything out and edits it into a professional, readable, polished book, also properly formatting the manuscript and preparing it to be presented to a literary agent and then a commercial, independent, boutique or self-publisher. The book ghost writer may only ghost write the work in progress, and a separate copy editor and even a separate proof reader may be hired to go over the finished manuscript; or the ghost writer may offer included editing and proof reading services. I do this myself when I ghost write, including the price of editing and proofing the manuscript within the overall book ghost writing price. However, if you can afford this, it’s always wise to hire another outside book editor for a second set of eyes.

The client may ask questions or raise concerns with the book ghost writer at any time during the book ghost writing project. This should be encouraged by any professional writer in order to facilitate the process of creating a solid, well thought out and well written manuscript that reads smoothly, has few typographical or other errors, has been thoroughly fact checked by both parties, and is otherwise ready to present to an agent and then a publisher. The writer’s job is to help the client, the original book author, to craft a book that reads if needed as though it was written by the author client, or at least one that reads professionally well. The ghost writer may work in either the client’s voice, which should come through in the client’s original writing, or in her own voice if the book author doesn’t mind some added creativity in the process.

Also, credit for the work may be shared, with the book ghost writer’s name being featured on the cover under the famous “As told to… ” method underneath the book author client’s name. Or the ghost writer can be not mentioned, with all credit, royalties and success going to the author client. In either case, the advance payment made to the professional writer is her main resource, as the thrust of writing a book for someone else is to make a living at helping you to produce your book project. The writer deserves the relatively high pay, as the book project often lasts from three to six months or longer, and the client is supposed to receive a well written, beautiful, awesome new book, one which hopefully will sell to its selected markets.

At our company, we have many resources at our disposal which involve assisting you in finding an agent and publishing your book, and methods for marketing, promoting and selling your book. We can also guide you to our partners and other networks outside our company which will assist you in arranging book advertising and sales. You may already have business or personal sources you can also use to promote sales.

One last thing: remember that you aren’t writing a book only for yourself, or even just your family and friends. You’re creating a wonderful work of art for both its readers and your long-term posterity, so you should aim for capably reaching out to its audience. Keep your readers forever in mind, trying very hard to write more for them than merely for you, your dreams and your book ghost writer.

Journalist V, Santhanam – An Inspiration To The Young

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Indians and Americans have become sisters and brothers from the very moment Swami Vivekananda opened his discourse with the words “Sisters and brothers of America” on September 11, 1893 when he participated in parliament of religions.

The true spirit lives on and will live for ever. An ardent follower of Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi, Mr. V Santhanam inspired thousands of readers through his articles and speeches in South India.

He was invited in late sixty by the then American Embassy. The Indo American joint ventures were shown to the leading journalists of India. Mr. V Santhanam was also invited as he was the editor in charge of Dinamani the leading Tamil daily which was read by thousands of Tamils in Southern part of India. He was very keen to promote the good Indo American relationship by publishing the necessary articles. On seeing his simple dress made out of Khaddar, and his refusal to drinks and meat, the American Officer was very much impressed and requested him to accompany in his car. He started asking questions about Indian Culture and Indian way of living and Mr. Santhanam explained all about India very gladly.

He was born in a middle class family in Tanjore District of Tamilnadu on the fourth of September 1911. His father invested all his money in a shop and the ship which was to deliver the ordered things drowned in the middle sea. The family last everything and came to Madras.

Santhanam took part in the freedom movement and was jailed along with the great leaders Kamaraj and Rajaji. The friendship grew in jail.

He started publishing the great poet Bharathiyar’s poems in the magazine Jayabharathi along with Ra. A. Padmanaban who was also an ardent lover of Bharathi’s poems.

At that point of time certain literary circle in Tamilnadu did not recognize the great poet. The famous literary magazine ‘Manikkodi’ was started by Mr B S Ramaiah, a very close friend of Santhanam. He worked in Manikkodi and the Manikkodi group started propagating the poems of Bharathi. Research articles showing the true mind of the poet were published. Bharathiyar’s works were nationalized.

India got independence in 1947. Santhanam joined the famous Tamil daily Dinamani and became its editor in charge of Madurai edition.

His articles on Spirituality were very inspiring. He participated in literary and spiritual meetings. He inspired the youth to go back to the Indian Vedas, Puranas and Idhihasas to find out the true meaning of Life.

His last words on August 15th 1998, Independence Day, were: Has the Flag hoisted?

True to his principle he lived for hoisting the flag of Mother India in the independent India and his words were only a reflection of his true self.

As an ardent lover of mankind, he promoted not only the good will but also the strong relationship of India and America through his work. The need of the hour is a continuous better relationship of the two great countries. May his soul inspire us to achieve the goal.

A Muslim Writer In America

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Khaled Husseini

Khaled Hosseini is a Muslim citizen of the United States, where he has lived for the past 33 years. Khaled was born in Afghanistan in 1965 and came with his father to the USA in 1981 after his father was granted political asylum.

That was the period when the Soviets had engineered a communist coup in Afghanistan and Khalid’s father could not go back. He was working in Paris at that time. Khalid’s father, in any case, did not want to go back to Afghanistan and he took the easier option of asking for asylum in the USA. The American government with its phobia of communism readily granted asylum to Hosseini.

In America

Perhaps if the scenario had been 2013, Khalid’s father would not have got asylum that easily. The wheel has turned full circle and Muslims who may or not have terror links are no longer welcome in the USA. It is to the credit of Khaled Hosseini that he has integrated with American life. But all along he has maintained his Muslim trappings.

He took to writing in the early twenty-first century and published his first novel ‘The Kite Runner ‘in 2003. The novel was a runaway hit and topped the bestseller charts for over 101 weeks. One of the reasons for the success of the book was its locale, Afghanistan which remains an enigma to most Americans. The old saying ‘distance lends enchantment to the view’ has been used by Hosseini to tempt the American audience with his books with Afghanistan as the locale.

And the Mountain Echoed

Khalid Hosseini has now penned another novel titled ‘And the Mountain Echoed’ in 2013. This is his third novel and again has Afghanistan as the background. Afghanistan is the home country of the writer and it is natural that most of his writings bring out the culture and clash of values of life in Afghanistan. Hosseini does not restrict himself to Afghanistan but encompasses a sweep that takes the reader from Kabul to Paris and further to the USA. It’s a very well written book and Hosseini presents a very plausible tale.

The story commences from an Afghan village when a poor man named Saboor relates a tale to justify his actions to his son, Abdullah. The real-life implication of the tale is that Abdullah is parted from his sister Pari who he loves greatly. He realizes that his father Saboor plans to sell his sister to a wealthy Kabul couple. She leaves and that void forever alters the lives of the young children.

Pari remains in the mind of Abdullah as Hosseini covers a period of six decades from the fifties to the 21st century. The characters move from small villages of Afghanistan to Paris and finally to the Greek island of Tinos.

Hosseini relates a parallel tale of characters like the step mother of Pari, Parwana and her brother Nab. Hosseini writes beautifully and one cannot distinguish from his writing that he is not an American by birth. The only giveaway is his locale of Afghanistan, which he presents to American readers with a lovely tale of human emotions.

Hosseini and Afghanistan

This novel is exquisite and readers will find information about Afghanistan wrapped in a lovely tale. Hosseini brings to the fore the rich cultural heritage of Afghanistan and how life is in the Afghan villages. It is sad that the Taliban have started an insurrection and wants to enforce the Wahhabi form of Islam. This may well take the Afghans back to the 6th century if they win. Hosseini deserves credit for writing this novel which has been liked by the American populace at large.

Last Word

Hosseini is an MD from the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine in 1993. He practiced medicine for 10 years before venturing as a writer with his book ‘The Kite Runners’. Subsequently, he wrote ‘A thousand Splendid Suns’

Last Word

Hosseini is a Goodwill Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and visited Afghanistan in 2007. Presently he resides in Northern California with his wife Roya and two children. But despite this Hosseini is a man who will never go back to Afghanistan.

A Complete Synopsis on Electrical Transformer

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

An electrical transformer switches voltage from one value to another or an additional value. Electric transformers are consists of two sets of coils or windings connected to a magnetic field. The coils are of two types which functions as conductors they are primary and secondary.

During the working of an electronic transformer the primary coil receives AC voltage; this constructs a changeable magnetic field of voltage adjacent to the conductor. The primary coil is reacting to the variable current of AC voltage. The magnetic field turns on the secondary conductor coil. As a result in the transformers varying the voltage and relocating the electrical energy, preferably with the smallest amount amount of energy loss.

The sum of windings on each coil is significant as this verify the voltage that is turning over from the primary to the secondary all the way through the magnetic field. The number of windings or revolve in the primary coil to the numeral of turn in the secondary coil decides the magnitude of the voltage. The core is usually made of iron as this creates the well-organized magnetic coil. Once the voltage adaptation is ended, the energy is transmitted to the load center and the electrical procedure carries on from there.

Electrical transformers can also hand out to separate parts of circuits from others. Electric transformers can be as big as the ones we see in the region of power lines or small adequate to be inserted away in house appliances. Electric transformers can also give out to exchange as power adapters in circumstances where there is a voltage dissimilarity connecting an electronic component or machine and an electrical power supply. There is a requirement in AC electrical systems to constantly augment or lesser the voltage level for effectiveness and security. Electric transformers offer for this necessitate spectacularly since their procedure is based on the changeable current of AC voltage.

The inward electrical transformers voltage is an essential factor. The three general frequencies obtainable are 50 Hz, 60Hz, and 400 Hz. European power is on average 50 Hz at the same time as North American power is more often than not 60Hz. The 400 Hz is set aside for high-capacity function such as aerospace technologies. It is also significant to reflect on the lesser amount of imperative power specifications when estimating transformers.

Supplementary specifications to remember when choosing an electric transformer are: the highest ratings of the next, secondary current and voltage rating, power and productivity rating. Power transformers have a variety of configurations according to segment and links. The majority ordinary phases are single-phase and three-phase. Both the dimension and cost of electric transformers add to in amount to the number of primary windings.

Transformers make use of inductance to step-up or step-down voltages. Transformers are the main reason that power transmission and house outlets use discontinuous current. This is for the reason that transformers permit for resourceful change in voltage that agree to power to be transmitted all over the globe at elevated voltages and low down costs.

Business Writing – The Special Types Of a Business Letter

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

There are different types of letters in business correspondence. Here are some special types of letters that we must know and how they play an important role in our daily communication.

a) Standard form letters

Correspondence cost money, and anything we can do to reduce the time spent on it is a saving for the business. The standard form letter is such an arrangement. Suppose a business is a mail-order house, and most of its business comes from people who write in and order one or other of its products. Many orders will of course be quite straightforward and will be dispatched by return of post. However, many orders will be defective for some reason, and many of the errors will be repeated again and again. In such a situation a standard form of letter is a great help. All we do is write a number of short paragraphs, one for each problem area. They are printed one after the other on a sheet of A4 paper with a box or dotted line to show which one applies in the case of any particular customer.

The usual thing with standard letters is to run off 100 or so on a plain paper copying machine from a master copy that is then filed. Each time one of the problems listed arises, the secretary simply takes a copy of the standard letter and completes the few details required, ticking the paragraph that applies in this particular case. An envelope is written and the letter placed in the ‘mail outwards’ tray.

b) Quick-reply letters

A quick reply letter is used by many types of administrative offices, e.g. central government departments and local authorities. They are constantly faced with the need to open a file on businesses of various sorts for control purposes. One of the many bodies of this sort is the Inland Revenue Department, e.g. the IR form 41G. Note that the chief feature of a quick-reply letter is that the page is divided in half by a centre line. Short, detailed questions are listed on the left-hand side, with space for a quick reply on the right-hand side. The design of such a form is usually a cooperative effort, the rough draft being passed around various people so that nothing is overlooked. When completed by the addressees, and returned, the file for the new business can be started up and will be kept as a current file for all the years that the business continues to run. It becomes a very detailed record of the business’s tax affairs, and the various tax inspectors can see at a glance the profits made, the promptness of payments, the good times and the bad times, etc.

Such forms should be reviewed from time to time to see that they still meet the needs of the departments, and a named individual will usually be charged with the duty of collecting and collating points that arise during the lifetime of the form. Then when it comes up for review, account can be taken of any defects that have come to the department’s attention.

Visit 101 Business Letter to learn the basics of letters and resourceful examples of letters can be found too.

Innovations Throughout the History of Medical Transcription and Where We Go From Here

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

Out of curiosity, I decided to take a look back at the history of medical transcription. What I wondered was how did medical transcription get its start and what was the impact of the medical transcription profession in the healthcare industry. In researching the history, I discovered a similarity in today’s electronic health record systems with the pre-1960’s time period and now question – where do we go from here?

What I learned was that prior to the 1960’s physicians basically acted as their own scribe. Each physician created their own personal notes regarding a patient visit, test or surgery using their own style of notation and abbreviation. This made it difficult on the occasion where others may have need of the information but were unable to decipher a physician’s handwriting or make sense of the notations and abbreviations used. With the growth of practices and hospitals and the need for research and study, it became necessary to work on standardization and find ways to assist the physician in capturing the medical documentation. Over the next few decades the medical transcription profession was born and continued to transform as new technologies developed.

In the 1960’s, physicians started to use medical stenographers who would write down the doctors’ dictation in shorthand and then type up their notes on electric typewriters. With the development of the mini and micro cassette recorder in the late 1960’s, physician and scribe no longer had to be face to face which allowed the transcribing to occur in a separate room and at a later time. Shorthand was no longer necessary as the stenographers could now type up the documentation directly from the dictation on the cassettes.

The 1970’s ushered in the early word processing machines, making the job of editing and correcting text quicker and more efficient. The introduction of the new technology helped to expand the medical transcription profession and in 1978 the American Association for Medical Transcription (AAMT), now known as the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI), was formed to help support and promote the medical transcription profession.

From the 1980’s up through today, we have seen technology transform from the word processing machines to personal computers that initially used floppy disks to digital online capabilities with faster processors and software with auto-correcting plus spelling and grammar checking. Dictation technology has also gone from micro-cassettes to digital recorders to voice recognition. With this evolving technology, the medical transcriptionist must learn and adapt right along with it. More than just typists, however, medical transcriptionists are medical language experts in addition to being medical documentation experts.

According to the AHDI website, quality medical transcription requires above-average knowledge of English grammar and punctuation; excellent auditory skills, allowing the transcriptionist to interpret sounds almost simultaneously with keyboarding; advanced proofreading and editing skills, ensuring accuracy of transcribed material; versatility in use of transcription equipment and computers; and highly developed analytical skills, employing deductive reasoning to convert sounds into meaningful form. The medical transcriptionist is a professional who takes the raw audio file and translates that into quality documentation.

The medical transcriptionist has been a quality link for documentation between physician and medical records since the 1960’s. This relationship allowed the primary focus to be placed on patient care by the physician. Recent technology advances of electronic health records (EHR) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) which mandates physicians and hospitals to transition to EHR, nonetheless, has lessened this valuable link and brought physicians back into the scribe role.

The EHR systems have many positive advantages but these advantages are offset by physicians being dissatisfied with having to spend more time doing data entry and clerical documentation which affects their interactions with patients as they divide their time between the patient and documenting the patient record. In a response to the plummeting level of satisfaction of EHR systems by physicians, a new developing transcription trend is occurring – the medical scribe. This trend moves the scribe role away, once again, from the physician.

So, is the medical scribe where we go from here or are there other trends waiting in the wings for us to discover? Clearly, the medical profession works best for the interest of the patient when the physician and scribe roles are separated. Physicians can do what they are best trained to do in treating and healing patients and scribes can do what they are best trained to do in delivering quality documentation. This mutually beneficial relationship between physician and scribe benefits not only each other but is a positive for the healthcare industry.

What Are Ghost Writers – What Do They Do?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Ghost Writing – It’s Illegal or Something?

You may be thinking that ghost writing is something wrong that celebrities do, hiring a professional writer instead of working on their own books. Actually, no, it’s not illegal, immoral or fattening in any way – except for fattening your purse! It’s done under “work for hire” laws all through the USA and in the world.

Have you been wondering for a long time about what ghost writers are and exactly what they do? This blog post/article is about ghost writing, specifically about my own career as a ghost. It may tempt you either into using a ghost yourself, or becoming one – if you happen to have the necessary writing and editing skills.

Definition of a Ghost Writer

Ghost writers are professional freelance writers who work for pay, but who usually don’t take any of the credit for the work we perform for our clients. We tend to take our pay during the course of completion of a writing project, but sometimes we also take a percentage of net sales for our writing efforts. Also, ghost writing clients not only get full credit, they get full copyrights to all of the original material, including all original material generated by any ghost writers.

Diversity of Ghost Writing

As a ghost writer, I find that my clients are widely diverse. I take on both fiction and nonfiction projects, and have had Indian gurus, Russian school teachers, English racing experts, Jewish Holocaust survivors, American bondage and discipline mavens, and almost every type of person you can imagine as my clients. This of course includes ordinary people with extraordinary gifts for fiction writing, at least in the ideas department. So I’m kept perpetually amused and continuously enlightened by my diverse clients.

Recently, I also helped out on a book by an Iraq, Afghanistan and Viet Nam War veteran, a book on how to land your ideal Prince Charming, a book about polar bears, global warming and how to be true to yourself, a book about how Rwanda is doing in the years after the 1994 genocide, and a book about using ice as a non-invasive therapy for many serious illnesses.

My Legacy as a Ghost Writer

I actually have about 200 some books under my belt and dozens of screenplays as well, all of which I helped out on in some capacity in my role as a ghost writer, editor and marketing provider for books, memoirs and screenplays. So I feel like I’ve left at least some kind of legacy or otherwise made my mark in this world, even though the vast majority of my projects don’t feature my name on them in any regard. And I’ve gotten a really good career out of it to boot, too. Do you think now that you could potentially use a writer’s professional services, or even make a pretty great ghost writer yourself?

Ghost Writing For Money

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

In the writing community there is a special subset of writer, called ghost writers, who are willing to bypass the glare of the spotlight and pass it on to someone else in return for money. Many ghost writers work their entire careers with their real names unknown to the general public. And as America’s and the world’s interest in the lives of celebrities and movers and shakers continues unabated, a good ghostwriter can look forward to many years of earnings opportunities.

What makes a good ghost writer? While the ability to write is, no doubt, at the top of the list – a lack of ego is not that far behind. Most of us desire, at some level, to be acknowledged for our achievements. A ghostwriter, however, by the simple nature of his career, has already come to terms with the idea that he is destined to work in obscurity. The only exceptions are in cases where you are able to have your name listed as a collaborator alongside of the author on the book cover and in the credits.

The range of work that a ghost writer can be involved in span across many lines. Ghostwriters are employed for both works of fiction and non-fiction. They are also employed in the writing of resumes and cover letters for others. Many times, a film studio or director is unsatisfied with a submitted script, they will hire a writer to punch it up.

Pricing arrangements for ghostwriters are an individual matter. Most will charge for a completed piece of work. That piece may be a draft or a final version, depending on its complexity. Most ghostwriters will charge for research also, if necessary. If the writer is working for a huge publisher, however, many times the research will be provided to them and their responsibility will simply be to put it all together in readable format. In the case where the ghostwriter is writing an auto-biography or memoir, he may write the book in installments and get paid for each installment as it is submitted and approved.

Not all ghostwriters are independent. Some work on site for publishers and produce projects as needed. This is especially prevalent with companies whose specialties is producing “how to” books. Many examples of books by ghostwriters can be found in the the home improvement niche where you will find entire book series on home building projects, home gardening plans, and so on.

Normally, once a ghostwriter hands in the final product, he is no longer associated with the project. The client takes ownership of the materials and presents it to the world as his own. The real writer gets no credit whatsoever.

The vocation of ghostwriting mostly allows a person to work at home or wherever they feel comfortable. The main criteria is that they do the work well and get it done on schedule.

For those who love to write, but who have no desire for fame or acknowledgment, ghost writing may be the perfect career choice.

Journalist Magazine Or Reporter

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

I can’t speak for the magazine business, but as a former newspaperman, I can tell you how newspapers gather information. The first thing a new reporter does on a beat is introduce himself to all the principle people on that beat. For example a reporter covering a federal courthouse would introduce himself to the chief judge in the district and to the US Attorney for the district, also to the clerk of the courts and the head of the US Marshal Service in that courthouse. In short, find out who the movers and decision makers are and make yourself known to them.

If I were covering the fashion world for a fashion magazine, I would first learn who the newsmakers were. IT might be a particular fashion house, a designer, or buyers for the important stores. Learn who they are and make yourself known to them. Also let them know that you are interested in any new developments in their fields and are willing to learn as much as you possibly can. You might also find out that many of the people in the fashion industry employ public relations firms to get the word out, so introduce yourself to the major PR people.

Depending on what your position is on your magazine, you might ask for help from some of the senior writers or editors. My practice was always to ask for help, no matter what the situation was. Sometimes people will see you as a threat to their jobs so they might refuse to help you, but it doesn’t hurt to ask. Keep an open mind and be creative in your search for information and for contacts.

Generally speaking, you are a journalist if you write for a newspaper, magazine or other kind of journal that reports the news regularly. According to American tradition and constitutional law, the profession of journalism is separate from and independent of government regulation or registration.This is important because it is felt within the journalism profession that once we submit to being registered and licensed by government, then the government that we are obliged to report on can then decide who is and who isn’t a journalist.

That means if I begin to report unfavorable facts about the way the government is doing business, they would have the power to revoke my registration and silence my journalistic voice. We fight hard to keep governments from trying to register us and to regulate us. We are governed only by laws of libel. Generally in this country you are a journalist if you report and write the news for a regularly published newspaper or magazine.

Various news organizations issue identification cards for their own employees and that should be enough. We steadfastly resist government’s attempt to regulate us.For if we allow them to regulate and license us, we also allow them to revoke that license and to silence us.I know I have repeated this principle several times, but it is important enough to bear repeating. If your weekly newspaper says you are a legitimate employee of them, engaged in writing and reporting the news, that should be enough.

A journalist is a person who reports and writes the news. He is usually an employee of a newspaper, or works under a contractual arrangement with a newspaper. The term is broad, it can include peple who report for magazines or for radio and TV stations. To get an exact definition go to a dictionary.

The freedom of the press and freedom for journalists to report the news is not a universal freedom. In many countries when a dictator or a tyrant takes over the first thing he does is get control of the newspapers. There are just some of those people out there that think can get away with some of the stuff that they are doing. Most of them think that if they can get control of the newpapers then they can have them print what they tell them too with death to them of a loved one. So most of the time a lot of journalist will stay clear of some topicas where others believe in freedom of speech.
