Why Good Journalists Welcome Criticism

When I was a cub reporter, an editor told me, “The best way to improve as a writer is to have someone rip your work to shreds.”
Now I'm a journalism professor, and I tell my students the same thing. You can’t be married to your words. You need to be open to feedback and even harsh criticism. In fact, you should invite it. It will make you a better writer.
