What makes a good interview?

A good interview is one that gives a lot of good solid information on the topic/person that you are trying to get information on. The interview is only as good as the questions you ask so having good, solid questions is important. Many things go into making an interview question good, but the most important thing is that it is an open ended question that allows for a well developed response. Asking someone a yes or no question in an interview doesn't really give much information about whatever you asked about, instead it's better to ask them how they personally feel about a certain topic. This gives the opinion of the person who matters in the interview and allows you to gain a lot more information.

Journalism

Journalism is pure excitement. A good piece of journalism really gets you into the story and makes you want to read on. Journalism can be good and bad depending on how accurate it is. Bias can also determine the difference between good and bad journalism. Having a certain bias one way or another can often hinder some if the truth of the piece or prevent both view points from being evenly explained. The most common place I run into journalism is reading the newspaper. I'm interested in journalism because it's how I get most of my news information and with good journalism it can get you all the facts you need about a certain event.
