Hilde Lysiak is still at it, putting journalists 5 times her age to shame.

Her growing media empire includes a book series and an upcoming TV show. Previously.

Kid's a chapter-book hero in real life. I'd have been insanely jealous and/or constantly trying to be her when I was a girl. (In fact, I was, but my models were pundits and not journalists, so I would draw up columns with a bunch of Opinions in them, and draw a little square picture of myself in the middle, just like in the paper.)

I have her on my FB feed, and I notice how much ordinary news she puts out -- abuse, assault, property crimes, and so forth. When she's older, she'll have that experience to go on. If they're hiring anyone in journalism by then, they'll hire her.

So I watched that video on the About page, but I am not sure what I watched. Did that small girl chase down some men with guns to ask them if they offered drugs to an 11-yr old? (To which they answered, she reports, "F Off".)

I'm gonna go complain to my mom about this and how dare she protect me and not let me do things like this as a child, which would have completely escalated her anxiety to 300%.

I love that her name is Hilde -- could her parents possibly have named after Hildy Johnson, the tough-as-nails wisecracking ace reporter character from The Front Page / His Girl Friday?
