Ignorance–Peering through the Walls of Justice

I remember the first time I was assigned to the courts. That was after my stint with the Talisay City beat.

I could only remember the time when I was going in and out of the Palace of Justice. I could only say that I was the most dumb-ass reporter at the courts. I realize I was no match with people like Ador Mayol of CDN, Justin Vestil of SunStar, Lloyd Suarez of dySS, and the rest assigned to the courts. I did not realize that in the long run, I’d be brushing elbows with these trusted journalists.

I wonder how I would fare if compared with interns from other schools assigned to the courts. Perhaps I could call myself a pauper in terms of abilities in court reporting.

As I have been assigned to the courts for three times during my internship, I will never claim to be an expert in the field of court reporting.

Lloyd Suarez told me once that this is the most difficult beat to cover. Difficult it is. Ador would even agree in our conversation at the RTC Library.

This first with the justice beat somehow did not make me a pauper at all.

Truth is, it even became an inspiration for the idea of conducting a seminar on court reporting. Lloyd Suarez and Ador Mayol will be speaking on January 14 at the MassCom Studio of the University of San Jose-Recoletosat 4:00 pm.

See you there!

    it may seem difficult for someone in your position..it feels strange and uneasy but you said so yourself that you liked the thrill it gave you..as for being of no match to people that you mentioned remember that they also had the same thoughts when it was them on their time..just be the man i know you are..and beat the odds..who knows, a few years from now, it will be you that will be inspiring masscom students to love this world..
