    I totally agree. Do they think that journalists are overpaid for their intelligence, commitment, and ethics, and their importance to a democracy? It is unconscionable greed and pettymindedness. Not too far back, an article in the Guardian reported that the average writer earns around $5000 a year, and even at that level, it’s been declining; I am a writer, not a journalist, and I don’t risk my life as journalists do, which is why they should be paid much, much better.
