Journalism
Journalism is the
 profession or practice of reporting about, photographing, or editing news stories for one of the mass media

"journalism." Collins English Dictionary - Complete & Unabridged 10th Edition. HarperCollins Publishers. 27 Oct. 2015.

What makes a journalist great are two things, their ability to be at the right place at the right time, and their ability to convey the news, without bias.

Actively seek the truth (reporting helps too)

Be respectful and protect your sources

Act and question outside of your own beliefs

Source well and don't slander or libel
-sourced in part from the Society of Professional Journalists

Acting on these ideas is the difference between a regular person and a journalist. Remember that people turn to journalists for the news, and to OP-ED's for opinion.
