“Look for the reason for everything without forgetting the responsibility of contrasting the news, the first commandment of journalism. After this, according to him, come other important traits for professional performance: reaping enthusiasm, making accurate directs, having an excellent pen, being a brilliant reporter and chronicler, having fun and enjoying the journey."
