What was your first job as a journalist?

Copy editor at Brentwood Publishing in Santa Monica, CA

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Way too much time on a typewriter as a college student, then as a free-lancer before the computer age. Three pitch letters = 6 hours, at best

How is social media changing news?

Smart journalists are using it for both quick and dirty AND in depth research on how ordinary readers perceive and react to news coverage.
