Journalism is the practice of writing about current events. Those who practice journalism are known as journalists.

The main activity of journalism is the reporting of events by stating the journalistic parameters of who, what, when, where, and how and commenting on the significance of the event.

Generally, a distinction is drawn between straight reporting (just the facts), op-ed columns (opinion and editorial comment from one author), and editorials[?], the official opinions of the paper.
