I’m a writer and I have often wondered if I’d have made any kind of a reporter. My gut feeling is…I would have made a really poor reporter. I just don’t have a newshound’s instincts. But my respect for quality reportage is real, true and heartfelt. And I honestly believe news is important. As I’ve said all along, News is important, because if it wasn’t important…it wouldn’t be news™️.
For me to be a reporter, I would have to be able to add my own spin to a given story. Observe:
“Local police say the man, who was crushed earlier today by a steamroller, was wearing a crushed velvet suit.”
This reporter is quick to add that though it’s assumed the victim’s velvet suit was crushed to begin with, if it wasn’t, it sure as hell is now!
