The most important journalism tool

CubReporters.org is introducing a new feature: Journalism Tip of the Week.

Here's our inaugural tip:
A journalist's most important tool is not a notepad, tape recorder, computer or even the ability to write a story. A journalist's most important tool is her brain. As a writer, you have to cut through the flab of all the information around. You need need to question, question, question. What happened? Who does this affect? Why is this important? Critical thinking precedes good writing.
Newspaper editors agree.
