Reg McKay:

 

Born July 15, 1953;

 

Died October 19, 2009.




Writer

A person, for you, is a book. Impossible to categorise, it veers from non-sense verse to the most tedious of novels and back in just a breath.

And the book ends, the book ends. And what makes the person more real,
then, than a book, is just that you cannot re-read one chapter, one sentence, one word.

You must re-write him, her, and you cannot. This inability is the source
of everything you have to say.

The legend still lives on Reg…

Saw this on another thread P and thought you can use it to explain what the newspapers do that most people believe to be true All the best with the new venture and Reg would be proud mate } [sneaky][comp][thumb][thumb]

Journalists usually refer to what they write as stories. Not articles or reports, occasionally pieces, but stories. This does not apply only to reporters but to everybody in the editorial chain, from desk editors, copy editors, specialist and sports writers to the editor him or herself. Words published in newspapers, on air or online are stories. 

Stories sound interesting; reports sound dull. To some, stories mean fiction: "Tell me a story, mummy". Stories are tall and short, made up and true. True stories are about what happened. We tell stories in conversation, recounting experiences and events in which we took part or observed. The crucial thing about a story is that other people want to hear it, because it is interesting or entertaining. Otherwise the storyteller is a bore. 

So journalists write stories for their readers to tell them what is going on, to inform them, engage them, entertain them, shock them, amuse them, disturb them, uplift them. The subject matter will vary according to the nature of the publication and the intended audience.

The good newspaper editor will have a clear idea of the sort of people who are reading it, and cater to their interests and preoccupations, sometimes their prejudices. And the paper will include that vital ingredient serendipity - the story you didn't expect, the "just fancy that", the absurdities as well as the travails of the human condition. 

 

Journalism is basically a simple game. It is about finding things out and telling other people about them. The finding out requires a variety of skills because those in power often prefer that we know only so much. Journalism is about holding such people to account, exposing their humbug and hypocrisy, the abuse of their power. This includes the control it gives them over the flow of information, the ability to bury the bad news, to spin and obfuscate. [rolleyes][sneaky][comp][thumb]
