BACKGROUND: I’ve been meaning to talk about this for ages. One common reason why journalists and other people in the media sometimes get cranky when people ask lots of questions about what they’re written is that by the time you’ve seen it they’re completely over it...
For the audience, the story is the beginning of their process. Remember that stupid Fairfax slogan, was it? “Start a conversation” That means buy the paper and YOU go off and chat amongst yourselves. It doesn’t mean we want to talk to you. :)
For the journalist, it’s the end of the process. They’ve done research, they’ve written a draft, they’ve argued with their editor, they’ve filed, they’ve changed what the editor doesn’t like, they’ve sulked — and then it’s the end of it and they have to move on to the next thing.
