Behind the information
NEWS can be anywhere. Even a small rumor about something can become a revealing thought for a desired something and this includes lots of good or bad stories and some events.
Journalism comes with a great role to the society, for they are the individuals who gather information that the people should know. As a student who witnessed the profession of a news reporter, I’ve learned that worthy news never comes easy. Before writing news, they gather much information as many as possible.
As what I have observed, gathering news and information can be amusing but it takes a lot of effort, commitment, knowledge, skill, confidence, and most importantly patience. One of the many things reporters get to do is interview people from bystanders and witnesses to high-ranking officials.
Some are done with other reporters, others exclusive and go deep into a certain topic. Most common source is a press conference where they get the chance to gather information about a specific topic. They are able to collect much information and they also get the chance to ask questions regarding the conversation.
Observing what reporters do can be inspiring for those who aspire to be one. By observing, we get to see how it is in the field and then have something to ponder on, whether this is indeed the career path you want.
