Power

You may not rule a kingdom or have the veto power of a president, but people will be sitting by the phone waiting for your call. What you tell them could be a matter of life or death. Choose your words carefully. You aren't just reporting news, you're telling cancer patients that you are about to subject them to radiation therapy, which doesn't always work. On the other hand, sometimes it does and you may save a life.
