Finding the story is the reminder this post intends for its readers.

“I think that in the process of teaching them reporting, we may kill their instinct for finding and telling real stories,” McAdams said on her post.

I agree with her statement. I know some journalism students are just too worried about getting all the facts right. That’s all they end up focusing on.

We’re taught to get the story, but not necessarily how to evaluate if it is actually a story. Many times once we’re given an assignment we say we don’t have any ideas for stories. I suppose since today the world is so fast-paced, we don’t take time to think about what’s really there.
