What a ______ time it is to be a journalist

Since January 2017, I’ve asked my Multimedia Storytelling students at Boston University to begin the semester by filling in this blank:

What a _____ time it is to be a journalist.

Prompting the assignment: The start of the Trump administration and the president’s virulent attacks on the news media.  I wanted to know how future journalists felt about the profession they chose.

Here are their answers, displayed in wordclouds.  The results speak for themselves — and their commitment to the profession.
