Neil Cavuto: Fox's High Priest of Business Journalism

Published on .

Cavuto: [Many of today’s budding journalists] have never learned how to write, or read much more than a text message. I’m a little startled at that. They’ll come out and text-message me after meeting me. I write a handwritten note to every guest who appears on my shows. I know it’s anal and I know it’s passé, ancient, but my view is, you were nice enough to come to me. I think that contact and that personal approach is something that’s lost. Sometimes I worry about this generation, taking so many shortcuts. … Don’t be a slave to your laziness. There is no shortcut for doing homework. Natural smarts combined with a hard and good work ethic, and you’ll go far.
