Educating good causes

A journalist’s job is not to PUBLICISE or EDUCATE.

A journalist’s job is to write an accurate article that is also well-written and fulfills the needs of the target publication and its readership.  Full stop.

Now out of  doing this job well, your article(s) may indeed publicise a good cause and educate readers about something they should know.  But don’t have your eye on publicising and educating.  Be centred on your role as a straight-forward journalist, and do it so well that these matters come about anyway.
