Stay Curious

WithRich Martin

Curiosity is a defining trait of all good journalists; the best ones possess what Albert Einstein called “a holy curiosity” about what’s going on in the world. They know people are complex and that their stories can be complicated, and that curiosity – always asking why and how – is essential to discovering facts that can lead to deeper insights and truths. Chapter 2 presents examples of reporters exercising their curiosity and getting answers to questions that no one else thought to ask. It also provides tips for how young journalists can develop their sense of wonder about the world.
