Writers are born with the pen inorder for them to impact their world positively.It is disheartening to realise that the pen has now become a tool for evil through castigation,slandering and false information.The pen is not evil itself since it is only a reflection of the user. Now is the time for writers to retrace their steps inorder for them to implement the purpose for which they were created. Note:fame generated on falsehood only shows how feeble and untrue you are. To thine own self be true.Possessing a good heart makes you a good writer not potent deceit. What is your take on this?

I hate bad and evil kinds of journalism, too. It's just... I don't know. People are doing too much for fame and popularity, and that's the same with magazines. Just to gain some more readers, they steep as low as humiliating celebrities publicly, not letting them any personal space (like following them to their vacations), spread lies about celebrities or any, even scientific things, to throw people a bone to munch on. I hate how journalism turned out to be, when, it the first times, it was actually for informing people well.

The pen is no longer used by writers nowadays. They use the keyboard. Lol, though yes you are right. Sometimes they overreact.

An intelligent man has two choices, either he will use his intelligence to help other people or he will use it to fool other people. Writers are intelligent people. They are able to influence their readers. I hope writers will use their intelligence to spread goodness towards their readers.
