Few careers can match the excitement and prestige of working for an accredited media organization. In the limelight 24/7, admired by millions of loyal viewers, and on the cusp of new and emerging stories, accredited journalism is a dream job for smart and eloquent scholars with a taste for adventure and a passion for bringing the truth to millions of viewers and readers. Accredited journalists and TV anchors are treated with a reverence like no other, as they dazzle their audience with fancy studios, smart suits, witty remarks, panels of experts and confident voices. Only the most paranoid right wing lunatics can resist their charm and bring themselves to question the well-presented information on accredited news channels. With so many perks, it of course goes without saying that a career in accredited journalism is reserved for only the best and brightest the world has to offer.
The life of an accredited journalist is laced with excitement and glamour, from conducting high-stakes interviews with high-level officials, meeting with celebrities, attending sophisticated New York cocktail parties and grilling Trump (or praising Obama) in White House press conferences. Accredited journalists are undoubtedly the cool kids with all the status and social clout in society. Average citizens giggle shyly and look at their feet when approached by important accredited journalists for their take on current affairs. While under the spotlight, average people do their best to look knowledgeable by acquiescing to the prevailing accredited narratives, rather than thinking about the issue from first principles or daring to admit that they don’t have an opinion on it yet. There’s nothing worse than looking foolish in front of a high status accredited journalist in a suit!
Accredited journalism also has an element of danger though, as revolutionary journalists and news anchors reveal breaking leaks from anonymous sources, and live in constant fear of persecution by fascist anti-journalism regimes like Trump’s America, Putin’s Russia and Duterte’s Philippines. Bringing the truth to the masses is not easy in an unstable political climate which actively demonizes honest journalists. During the Michael Brown saga, the accredited media wasn’t afraid to take sides (even before the trial), despite the risk of repercussions from America’s powerful police force and prison industrial complex. Just because accredited journalists live lives of glamour and decadence, doesn’t mean they can’t also be lauded as courageous revolutionaries and activists.
At the Accredited Times, the fastest growing accredited news site on the web, our editorial team dreams of one day living the lives of Chris Cuomo, Brian Stelter and Megyn Kelly, attending White House Press conferences, breaking classified information from anonymous sources and attending fancy dinners and parties with celebrities and movers and shakers. With our degrees in CRT and a range of other important humanities, portfolios of ground-breaking accredited articles, and a keen eye for current affairs, we know that it’s only a matter of time before we’re all scooped up by the New York Times or the Washington Post. Rumor has it that Time Warner is also closely eyeing the AT for an acquisition, as they look to make in-roads into internet media, which every accredited expert agrees is the future of journalism. Exciting times are ahead folks, so tighten your seat-belts. This exciting new adventure in accredited journalism is only getting started!
