Poll: Journalists Ranked Near Bottom of Professions

Item: Still Don't Get No Respect: Poll Finds Journos At Bottom Of 'Prestige' Jobs/Editor & Publisher

More Info: Journalists were rated ahead of just seven other occupations: union leader, stockbroker, entertainer, accountant, banker, actor, and real estate agent/broker.
In addition to firefighters, five occupations are perceived to have "very great" prestige by at least half of all adults -- scientists (54%); teachers (54%); doctors (52%); military officers (52%); and nurses (50%).

Question: Where would you rank journalists?
