Things I Learned from Day 3 speakers

  • Anyone can teach you journalism but you won’t be good unless you do it.
  • A story should
    • make a difference
    • do what others cannot
    • be part of the conversation
    • act urgently
    • know who you are
  • A lot of kids create their own political opinions despite their parents’ influence
  • Most first headlines are wrong
  • It is our responsibility to say the truth
  • Not our job to tell someone what to think
  • They don’t have to like you, they have to trust you
  • It isn’t about our opinions or what we think… we have to create a common base of facts
