That work, journalism, isn't exactly easy or well paid. Over the past couple of years, CareerCast has consistently ranked being a news reporter as one of the worst, if not the worst, job there is—right up there with being a lumberjack, taxi driver, or enlisted military personnel—thanks to the high stress, low pay, and shrinking job prospects.

But journalism can still, as "Spotlight" demonstrates, hold powerful people and institutions accountable and uncover egregious wrongdoings to effect change. In that sense, even though "Spotlight" doesn't valorize the reporters, laud the field of journalism, or exaggerate the drama of the trauma these reporters uncovered, it still makes a powerful statement about the value of journalism in an economic climate that constantly undervalues it.
