My name is Eli Johnson. This is my professional blog. I am currently a journalism student at the University of Alaska Anchorage. I have an Op-ed column in The Northern Light, a college newspaper here. My primary interest is politics. I am looking to find employment after college with the media to continue my efforts to report on the political interests of this nation. I am a liberal. Bill Moyer once said that having a bias is alright, as long as it is made clear to everybody. Progressive liberal politics is my bias. In keeping with my bias, and my interests, I support free thinking, and free expression. I may be from Alaska, but I am an open-minded and politically engaged young man, who hopes to keep going in my efforts to report on political events in the future.
