Hi, all! My name is Juliana; I’m taking over Missing Comma for Trevor at the moment — big thank-you to Trevor for reading all of my agitated Facebook statuses about the media — but will most likely be sticking around when he’s back.
I’m a journalism student at Marist College, a staunch advocate of press freedom, member of the Society of Professional Journalists on the campus and national level, rising Campus Coordinator at Students for Liberty, disgruntled student activist, disciple of Glenn Greenwald, thrift store enthusiast and all-around news junkie. I’m from a suburb of NYC, and want to be an international news correspondent when I grow up. Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals changed my life when I was 16, as did Rothbard’s Ethics of Liberty my first year of college. My approach to anarchism and libertarianism tends to come from a place of current political events and media analysis, so forgive me if I confuse my philosophers, but not if I fudge dates and facts. I probably don’t need to tell you that the media is one of the most important tools used by the state to screw things up, and I see being a member of the media as having an incredibly powerful platform for advocacy and access to hard-hitting news.
So toss aside your AP Stylebook (but don’t throw it too far), make a fist to shake at the TV, follow me @JulianaTweets0 and stay tuned.
