RE: WHY PEOPLE DON’T LIKE US

Excellent point, Trey. Last year D Magazine sent several staffers to the SMU Cox School of Business to attend a seminar on the GenX and GenY demographic. One clear point from extensive research: those of Matthew Haag’s generation have an unprecedented desire for fame and attention (hence, My Space, Facebook, Xanga, etc.). This young reporter, whose heart may be exactly in the right place, doesn’t realize how his thrill at a front page by-line is appalling to a public who cares more about the subject than the messenger.  The day that journalism becomes more a path to stardom than a vocation of serving one’s fellow man is the day we are finished.
