“Orienting to Journalism: The Ever-Changing Now” by Carlin Romano

Mar 16, 2022

“One of the greatest challenges of journalism is the need to pay attention, to keep up constantly on what’s happening in the world and one’s area—to orient oneself to what I call, in my title, the ever-changing now.”

Carlin Romano, who teaches philosophy and media studies at the University of Pennsylvania and Florida Atlantic University and who is one of HFPO’s advisory council members, just contributed a new essay, entitled “Orienting to Journalism: The Ever-Changing Now,” to our series of “Essays on Orientation Skills in Everyday and Professional Life.”

In this essay, Romano delves into the question of which orientation skills are required to finding one’s way successfully in the fast-paced field of journalism.
