News Anchor Lester Holt on Talking and Listening

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

“NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt gave the commencement address at Villanova University on Friday.

He told the audience, “Sometimes I wonder if a little less talking might serve us better in some circumstances. Asking smart questions. Searching for the truth. Learning to spot the red herrings are critically important. But I fear listening gets short shrift.
