Hello from Muck Rack, where you can get a snapshot of what journalists around the world are reading, thinking and commenting on right now.

Journalism has never been an industry for the faint of heart, but those in the field have had to develop particularly thick skin lately.

From fighting off accusations of fake news to struggling to keep strong stories afloat in a sea of clickbait headlines, journalists are heading to battle on several fronts.

Read this post on the Muck Rack blog to find out why and check out some other popular blog posts from the past few weeks.
