Skills needed by today’s journalists.

“One skill I would definitely add, for a new ninth item, is interviewing. This goes hand in glove with 3, 6, and 7. In listening to raw audio of student journalists’ interviews, I hear that they often ask terrible questions, fail to listen attentively, miss many opportunities for follow-up questions, and sometimes flat-out fail to ask the most necessary questions. Interviewing does not come naturally like breathing, and I think we’re neglecting it as a skill to be honed in many of our classes. Yes, we teach about interviewing — but how many journalism educators actually listen to their students conducting a one-on-one interview?”

Se isto é um homem.

“Porque aquele olhar não aconteceu entre dois homens; e, se soubesse explicar a fundo a natureza daquele olhar, trocado como através da parede de vidro de um aquário entre dois seres que habitam meios diferentes, também saberia explicar a essência da grande loucura da terceira Alemanha.”

Primo Levi, Se Isto É Um Homem

Se um dia fizer uma lista de livros que todas as pessoas deveriam ler, este com certeza estará no top 5.

Advice for student media editors

Be fearless…

You’re only there for a year, so grow some balls. Got a splash? Make it a damn good story. Go the extra mile, put in the extra two hours. Find the extra contact. Is it going to annoy someone? Then it’s probably news.

E algo que eu deveria ter lido em Junho…

Use the summer

The summer is quiet. If you’re going to change the design around, do it in the summer. If you want to improve the website, do it in the summer. Create a calendar and put key events in it. Spend the summer meeting with contacts who will give you stories. When the crunch time arrives in September you want to be so prepared so you know exactly how the next 12 weeks are going to play. If you sit around doing nothing during the summer you will have a rubbish year.
