Last week, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be in Warsaw for the n-ost conference. Journalism is one very ungrateful trade nowadays, with issues from small wages to an inglorious fight to stay relevant, but that meeting was nothing about it. It wasn’t about any trendy new tool or about how fancy cosmopolitan NY journalists were creating a newsletter to fight Trump. It wasn’t about that neither. The journalists I saw were talking, in many cases, about how to keep on reporting without ending up broke, in jail or worse. It was basic journalism 101.
