  • Arturas Racas - a defiant critic
    disappointments and discoveries would you discern Talking of the disappointments I have never frankly expected that media will ever become the way it is today that it will be awash with unreliable information warped facts plain eye detectable propaganda and trivial or juicy news I m also disappointed how some of the analysts out there are getting increasingly out of touch with what analysis even means and can ramble on with pejorative demeaning cliches monikers and so on It s amazing to me to hear how such a reputable analyst can be referring to 15 really reputable economy pundits as dullards and no one really cares about it This is something that could have been unheard of some time ago I reckon the quality of news was better before too Frankly I see Lithuanian media more regressing than progressing Speaking of the brightest discoveries about the profession what comes off the top of my mind first are all the encounters with people I ve come along at my work Obviously journalism is a great profession to learn about things and weigh in on them too I know quite a bit about Lithuanian energy oil law and politics obviously That I can go to court today alone without an attorney is also part of the savviness and shrewdness that journalism gives one That I could help quite a few people really help as a journalist is also quite a big thing to me As a matter of fact I m proud that I may have been the trigger to helping some young people on their way to becoming journalists It makes me feel good You have taught journalists at Lithuania s main journalist forgery the Institute of Journalism at Vilnius University How was the experience How is the high tech savvy generation as future journalists Indeed I ve taught a course of business journalism for a half year at the school But perhaps I was too critical of the teaching programme which seemed to me to be out of touch with today s requirements for the profession so I got cut from the staff at the end of the day I kept receiving letters of acknowledgment from the students well after I left the Institute which makes me feel good I do not feel like talking about generational things when it comes to the preparation of journalists frankly there were indolent journalism students in the old days and now alike but again some things I found out in the school left me astonished For example I asked my second year students on the first day to take a test gauging their intellect and knowledge The test results left me dumbfounded Only one out of 28 students could tell the name of chief of Bank of Lithuania only two perhaps could explain what consumption taxes are about Let s leave alone that no one knew who the International Monetary Fund chief was or what some well known acronyms mean At the end
