Why Does Journalism Attract The Worst People?

I’m sure I’m going to offend a lot of people with this as there are a lot of journalists on Medium as well as aspiring journalists (yikes). I’ve worked in journalism myself and I’ve worked alongside a lot of them in different capacities, and they seem to be consistently assholes.

Not all of them, but the vast majority. It’s rare to find a humble journalist, even if they operate in the right way. It’s similar to actors, except journalists don’t molest kids.
