Types of Newspaper Journalism

Location, readership, political climate, and competition contribute to transformations in journalistic models and writing styles.

Objectivity: employing impartiality, to satisfy a wide range of readers.

An interpretive journalist goes beyond the basic facts to provide context, analysis, and possible consequences.

Literary Journalism combines factual reporting with fictional narration.

Advocacy journalists promote a cause with a biased, nonobjective viewpoint.

An enterprising reporter might arrange to get an advance copy of the speech so he can be more aware of how the speech is delivered. Indeed, the reporter can write much of the story prior to the actual speech.

Reporters must be cautious, however, for the speaker who discards his speech for another, or for speakers who make important impromptu remarks during the course of their speeches.
