Re: An Invitation And Request For ICANT
ICANT writes:

But I studied something in the 7th grade in journalism class that can help anyone to better understand what they read. We studied it so we would know how to write a story to tell what we were reporting on.

There are five things you need to know to tell a story or understand it.

1. Who is speaking/writing?
2. To whom or about whom is he speaking/writing?
3. What subject is he speaking/writing about?
4. When or about what time is he speaking/writing?
5. What is the occasion for the speaking or writing?

Phat, as always ICANT only tells you part of the story, deliberately withholding the most important so that he can lead you by the nose:

6. WHY is person telling me this and why now?

He also omits the most important journalistic principles of all, consider your source, check everything and remain independent.

quote:
Its [journalism's] practitioners must maintain an independence from those they cover

Independence is a cornerstone of reliability.

On one level, it means not becoming seduced by sources, intimidated by power, or compromised by self-interest. On a deeper level it speaks to an independence of spirit and an open-mindedness and intellectual curiosity that helps the journalist see beyond his or her own class or economic status, race, ethnicity, religion, gender or ego.
